HC Deb 31 May 1916 vol 82 c2750W

asked whether certain turbary on the estate of Sir Rowland Blennerhassett, at Ownagarry, Kilgobnet, county Kerry, is advertised for sale; and whether the sale could be postponed so as to enable the Ashbourne annuitants to consider if they are willing to pay the price fixed by the Estates Commissioners?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. Having regard to the tenure and grazing rights, a sale of the turbary under the Land Purchase Acts is not practicable. No price has, therefore, been fixed by the Estates Commissioners, and no useful purpose would be served by postponing the proposed auction.
