Practice - Judgment - Action for recovery of land - Order 14, r. 1 - Specially indorsed writ - Tenancy "duly determined by notice to quit" - Order 3,r. 6 (F).

Appeal from an order of the King's Bench Division granting the plaintiff's motion for final judgment in an action for the recovery of possession of premises for over-holding. The special indorsement on plaintiff's writ was as follows:—"The plaintiff is entitled to possession of the shop and premises No. 1 Upper George's Street, Kingstown, in the County of Dublin, which was by agreement dated the 3rd day of July, 1918, let by the plaintiff (as Receiver over the estate of Philip P. Hynes) to the defendant as tenant from year to year from the 24th day of May, 1918, which tenancy was duly determined by notice to quit, expiring on the 1st day of March, 1920."

Frank Stokes, Receiver over the estate of Philip P. Hynes. Dated this 31st day of January, 1920."
