(abridged)
Some of the landlords in the vicinity of Kinvarra have given very substantial rent abatements. Col. Llewelyn Blake, Northampton House, Kinvarra, and Cloughballymore, Ballindereen, has allowed his tenants on both properties the same reductions as he gave last year, viz. 25 per cent off the reduced rent or 50 per cent off the old rent.

Edward J. Murphy Esq, Tullyra Castle Ardrahan, has also allowed his tenants an abatement of 25 per cent off the reduced rents.
