§ MR. LUNDON (Limerick, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can say how the Mountshannon estate, in county, Limerick, stands at present; how soon it will be available for distribution; and have the names of Simon Ryan, of Cross Pallasgrean, James Conway, of Gurtavalla Doon Hanora Lonergan of Lower Toomaline Doon, and Ellen Rafferty, of Knockroe, Kilteely, who applied for farms on it instead of their evicted farms something about two years ago, been recognised as among those who are appointed to receive farms on this estate.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners have agreed to purchase this estate and expect to obtain possession next May. The scheme for the distribution of the farms has not yet been settled, and the Commissioners are therefore unable to say whether the persons named in the Question will be allotted farms. There is a large number of applicants.
