Today at the Four Courts, an appeal under the Land Purchase Acts involving County Limerick’s B.J. Ferguson, a solicitor, was heard by Justices Meredith, Commissioner Lynch, and Commissioner Hon. Gerald FitzGerald, K.C. Ferguson challenged the ruling of Mr Commissioner O’Brien on the sale price of a property. However, without any valuation to support his claim, Ferguson’s appeal was unsuccessful. He argued that the property’s value was higher than the £350 offered by O’Brien, but the Justices ultimately confirmed O’Brien’s decision, citing the inspector’s report that supported the initial offer.
