I am informed by the Registrar of Titles that an application under section 49, that is, acquisition of title by virtue of long possession, of the Registration of Title Act, 1963 was lodged on 20 July 2000 in relation to the first folio number referred to by the Deputy. I understand that, due to their complicated nature, applications under section 49, which require detailed examination of claims for registration as owners, can take some time to process.
I am further informed that queries issued to the lodging solicitor on 7 September 2000 and a reply to the queries was received on 29 September 2000. I can assure the Deputy that the Land Registry will do everything possible to expedite the resolution of this application.
I am informed that there is no dealing pending on Folio No. 4320 County Mayo.
