W.H.Stuart, Esq., Estate Commissioner Inspector, visited Kinvara last week for the purpose of conferring the Mr Thomas P. Corless, J.P. Chairman Gort District Council on the evicted tenants question. The Estate Commissioners have, it is said, in contemplation the purchase of large and valuable grazing farms in the district for the purpose of dividing them out amongst the people. The ever vigilant P.P., Father Burke, interviewed the inspector at Corless’ Hotel during his stay and gave him every aid in his good work.
