Disputes with tenants and evictions, includes material relating to women, for example:
30 November1913-16 Jan 1915, correspondence file concerning a dispute between Bessie Therry and Stephen Grehan over land she holds from him. 'Do you so now intend to so force me a rent of £99 for this place can you possibly consider such a thing fair for a farm that cannot keep property more than 20 cows. There is no doubt that I was grossly wronged in the statements made about this place to the land Commission Court' (10 April 1915) She several times alleged that her brother John, Grehan's agent, colluded with Grehan against her (18 January 1915, 19 May 1915) while stressing the trouble and distress the whole matter has brought on her.
Includes copies of official notices of hearing of the dispute by the Court of the Land Commission, detailing the property involved and its value, also a letter from Bessie's brother John Therry who states `I think Sister is not acting well and is most unreasonable, of course you are to serve notice on a tenant and have a rent fixed (17 May 1914).
