1. In order that Coillte took the farm over, they would have to have purchased it, from whoever had title when the relative of your mother died. Coillte would not enter on a farm and plant it unless they had good title to the farm. So, to check what happened, you should either yourself, or get a solicitor, to check in the Land Registry to see who sold the farm to Coillte. You can get up the deed which transacted the sale from the Land Registry if you request it to see the sale price and who sold it. This will tell you what happened to it.

2. Alternatively, you can search in the Probate Office in Dublin, beside the Four Courts complex for the last will of your relative and see what his will stated about his farm of land. This will tell you, to whom the land was left. You can then take it that they sold the land to Coillte. In order that Coillte got good title to the land someone who have needed to take out probate to the estate of your late relative as otherwise any sale to Coillte would not have been lawful. Any person can search in the Probate Office or you can telephone or email a query. So in this way you can find out what happened on your relative's death.
