§ Mr. VINCENT KENNEDY
asked the Chief Secretary whether there is any reason or objection which can be overcome to the reinstatement of Thomas O'Donnell, Drumconlester, county Cavan; what was the date of O'Donnell's eviction; and how many evicted tenants still remain to be dealt with in county Cavan?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
O'Donnell in his application for reinstatement states he was evicted in May, 1895. O'Donnell's sister has been reinstated in the holding in respect of which he applied for reinstatement, and of which she appears to have been the original tenant, and the Estates Commissioners cannot interfere in the matter of O'Donnell's application. There are seven county Cavan evicted tenants whose applications for reinstatement have been noted for consideration in the allotment of untenanted land acquired by the Commissioners and who have not yet been provided with holdings.
