HC Deb 09 February 1860 vol 156 c725

said, he rose to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland what provision is being made at Holyhead for the accommodation of the large Steamers which will commence running to and from Kingstown in June next; and whether it is true, as reported, that the recent extension of the old Pier has been found quite useless for that purpose, in consequence of its being too much exposed.


replied, that as to the extension of the old pier so far from its being useless the boats now regularly ran to it. It was true, that it was exposed to points NNE., but during the whole of the late tempestuous season the railway-boat had only been prevented using it three times. The noble Lord, the Secretary of the Admiralty, had under his consideration at the present moment what new alterations were necessary.
