Department of Agriculture and Food
Registration of Title
Question 466: To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if she will seek confirmation from the Land Commission that when land was signed over to a person (details supplied) in County Cork from the Land Commission that a small portion of the land was omitted in error in the transfer. [17063/07]
The land the subject of this question was vested by the former Land Commission in 1936 which resulted in the opening of the original Folio, from which the Folios mentioned have devolved. Ownership subsequently changed in 1954 in a private transaction. It was subsequently transferred to the current Folio in another private transaction in 1985. No mention appears to have been made to the small portion of land in any of these transactions. The most recent transaction noted on the Folio was executed in 1985 and from the details supplied it would appear the possible omission was discovered at that stage. I am having the issue investigated and I will write to the Deputy as soon as possible.
