§ MR. O'HANLON
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether Thomas Kelly, of Esnacillager, or Mearns Cross, who was appointed postmaster some two years ago by an official from Dublin, was ever remunerated for his troubleand expense; and whether, inasmuch as Kelly set the boxes apart for stamps, letters, and papers, and kept them exclusively for that purpose 276 since, and that his place is eight miles from Clunes, County Monaghan, and three miles from the nearest post office, some remuneration will be paid to him for his expenses?
§ *MR. RAIKES
I cannot find that any appointment was conferred on Thomas Kelly, as supposed by the hon. Member; but about the time stated the official delivery of letters was extended in the neighbourhood of Mearns Cross. I will, however, have further inquiry made on the subject.
