§ Mr. GINNELL
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he will state the entire cost incurred in connection with the eviction of Mr. Richard J. Walsh from his farm on the Gun Mahony estate, near Cordal, county Kerry, and since in protecting the farm and the evictor until his death; and whether Mr. Walsh will now be allowed to resume possession of his farm as a purchaser at the value ascertained by the Estates Commissioners?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Inspector-General informs me that the expenses incurred in connection with the eviction of Mr. Richard J. Walsh and the subsequent protection of the late Mr. Mahony and his property amount to about £1,115. The Estates Commissioners are in communication with the owner regarding the holding referred to, but they are not at present in a position to make any statement on the subject of Mr. Walsh's application for reinstatement.
