Vol. 205 No. 4

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Acquisition of Westmeath Estate.


asked the Minister for Lands if the Land Commission will acquire the Malone Estate, Shinglis, Ballymore, County Westmeath which is up for sale, to relieve local congestion in the area.

There are no proceedings for compulsory acquisition of this estate. Last year, efforts were made by the Land Commission to purchase the property on a voluntary basis but their offer did not prove acceptable to the owner. At this stage I am unable to forecast what other developments there will be.
