The case of Oakley v. Kerley involved an application for a court-ordered sale of four land pieces, totaling around 27 acres, belonging to the late James Kerley, a cattle dealer from Janesboro, Limerick. The lands, situated in the immediate vicinity of Limerick, carried rents amounting to approximately £52 per annum.
The case was brought forward by Messrs. Hanley and Sons of Dublin, and sought to administer the estate for the defendant, Catherine Kerley, a resident of Boherbuoy Road, Limerick. Mr D Browne, R.C., and Mr Brunskill represented the defendant and plaintiffs, respectively.
The court granted the application and directed the sale of the land in question.
