HC Deb 24 March 1892 vol 2 c1686
MR. J. E. REDMOND (Waterford)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he has received several petitions from the inhabitants of Ferrybank praying for the establishment of a telegraph office; and whether, considering the large population of the district and the distance from the nearest telegraph office in Waterford, he will comply with the prayer of the petitioners?


Such an application was made in 1885; but the circumstances did not then justify a compliance with the request. A petition on the same subject was received on 18th January last, and as the reports show that the circumstances now justify it, I shall have pleasure in establishing a telegraph office at Ferrybank.
