HC Deb 13 May 1887 vol 314 c1812
MR. W. A. MACDONALD (Queen's Co., Ossory)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether it is a fact that a man named Tynan is now a candidate for the office of Postmaster at Borris in Ossory, Queen's County; whether the said Tynan is over 70 years of age, and can hardly be expected to discharge the duties in person; and, whether a more suitable candidate cannot be found?

THE POSTMASTER GENEBAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

Thomas Tynan has been nominated by the Treasury to the Post Office at Borris in Ossory. Inquiry is being made as to his fitness, and he will not be appointed unless he should be found to be a proper person for the office.
