HC Deb 30 June 1924 vol 175 c950W

asked the Home Secretary whether the island known as Hill's Island, in Lower Lough Erne, in the townland of Legg, barony of Magheraboy, and County of Fermanagh, is the property, and in the occupation, of the Crown; and whether the fishing rights on the shore of Hill's Island are also exclusively vested in the Crown?


I have been asked to reply to this question. All land on the island in question between the old and the new level of the Lough, together with the fishing rights, subject to any rights of the successors of the original patentees, form part of the land revenues of the Crown. The island is not in the possession of the Crown.
