§ MR. THOMAS HEALY(for Mr. MAURICE HEALY,) Cork
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether his attention has been called to the resolution of the Skibbereen Town Commissioners as regards the inconvenience and unsuitability of the existing post office in Skibbereen; and whether, seeing that a suitable site has been offered to the Department, situated in a convenient and central position, and that post offices have been built in other Irish towns with a smaller population, a post office will be built at Skibbereen?
§ SIR JAMES FERGUSSON
Yes, Sir, and the district surveyor has been in constant correspondence with the town clerk on the subject. I hope that a satisfactory result will be obtained. It is usual in similar towns for the postmaster to rent an office, the Department furnishing the rent. The Department is anxious that a suitable office shall be provided at Skibbereen, the present accommodation being insufficient.
