A recent parliamentary return released in Ireland provides a breakdown of evictions from agricultural holdings in the country. The report, which details the number of evictions in the quarter ending June, shows that the total number of evictions across Ireland has increased compared to the previous quarter.
In Limerick County, specifically, 39 tenants had their tenancies determined, making it the highest in the Munster region, followed by Cork with 30 evictions. The total number of evictions in Munster was 122 for the last quarter.
The report also reveals that eviction notices under Section 7 of the Land Law Act of 1887 have led to 987 tenants being converted into caretakers across Ireland. Limerick County is particularly affected, with 39 tenants experiencing this change in their tenancy status.
This increase in evictions, especially in Limerick and the Munster region, highlights the ongoing challenges faced by the agricultural community and raises concerns about the stability of housing and tenancies for those working in the sector.
In conclusion, the recent rise in evictions in Ireland, particularly in Limerick County, underscores the need for ongoing support and policy reforms to protect the rights and livelihoods of agricultural tenants in the country.
