HC Deb 10 October 1912 vol 42 cc539-40W

asked whether any steps have been taken by the Estates Commissioners to make good the damage done by the breaking of the river banks on the estate of Sir Charles Barrington, at Murroe, county Limerick; and, in view of the damage caused and the losses sustained by the tenants on the property and in order to prevent a recurrence of the same thing, will the estimate of the engineer, Mr. Joseph O'Malley, B.A.B.E., Limerick, who was brought on the place, be adopted or, if not, will some independent engineer from the staff of the Commissioners come and see what course is best to be pursued?


This estate is the subject of proceedings for sale direct by the landlord to the tenants. The inspector who visited the property arranged as to the steps to be taken to repair the banks of the river on the estate, and the tenants and vendor's representative agreed to carry them out. The Estates Commissioners are in communication with the vendor as to the provision of a sum of money for the future upkeep of the embankments.
