Connacht Tribune 5th May, 1934 p.11
At a meeting of the tenants of the Sharpe estate, Kinvara, a letter was read from the solicitor to the estate, offering on behalf of the trustees, a reduction of 15 per cent on the current rents in addition to 15 per cent temporary abatement allowed 25 years ago and now made permanent. This was an advance of 5 per cent on the trustee’s previous offer.
In the matter of the arrears the letter stated these must be left in abeyance as the acting trustee had not the power to cancel them. A motion was brought forward that the trustees’ offer be accepted as the tenants were not in a position to hold out for more favourable terms. After much discussion the motion was agreed.
