§ 50. Mr. DELANY
asked whether the Estates Commissioners have received a resolution passed by the Abbeyleix branch of the United Irish League, drawing their attention to the case of Michael Delany, late of Ballymaddock, on the De Vesci estate, Abbeyleix, Queen's County, whose father was evicted from a farm of thirty acres on the De Vesci estate, in July, 1882, under most cruel and heartless circumstances, and urging the Commissioners to provide him with an allotment on the first available land that comes into their hands; and what action the Commissioners propose taking in this case?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners have received the resolution referred to. The holding on the De Vesci estate, Queen's County, formerly occupied by Delany's father is now in the possession of another tenant. The Commissioners have decided to take no action in the matter.
§ 52. Mr. FRANCIS MEEHAN
asked whether the Estates Commissioners have considered the application of Mary Connolly, of Eden, Rossinver, county Leitrim, for reinstatement in the farm from which she and her family were evicted on the estate of James Johnston, Kinlough, on the 13th May, 1899; and whether, having regard to the fact that the occupying tenant is willing to give up possession, she will be reinstated or supplied with a suitable farm elsewhere?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners are unable to trace the receipt of any application from Mary Connolly for reinstatement in a holding on the estate referred to.
