Dáil Éireann Debate
Mr. MARTIN M. NALLY: asked the Minister for Fisheries whether he is aware that acute congestion exists in the electoral divisions of Kilvine, Ballindine, Crossboyne, Caraun, and Claremorris; that the lands known as Castlemacgarrett Demesne, which are subject to an annuity to the Land Commission, are being sold in small lots by the owners, and that new tenancies are being created; whether the Land Commission have granted the owners permission to sub-divide the lands; and what steps, if any, are being taken to  acquire the estate for the relief of congestion.
PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTER for FISHERIES (Mr. Roddy): There is not any application pending before the Land Commission for leave to sub-divide the lands referred to, which are subject to a land purchase annuity.
Mr. MARTIN M. NALLY: asked the Minister for Fisheries whether he will state the cause of the delay on the part of the Irish Land Commission in taking over, for the relief of the congestion existing in the district, the large grazing ranch held by Mr. Martin Curran, known as Ballykinava Farm, near Claremorris.
