HC Deb 26 August 1895 vol 36 c791

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if he is aware of the inconvenience caused to the inhabitants of Achill Island, and to tourists visiting it, by the fact that the mail train which leaves Dublin at 7.40 a.m. proceeds no further than Westport, thus causing a delay of several hours in the delivery of the Achill mail; and, will he take steps to insure that there shall be a continued service right through to Achill of the 7.40 mail train from Dublin?


The railway has only been opened to Achill since May last, and full reports have not been received yet as to the expediency of using it for the mail service. The question raised by the hon. Member, however, will be carefully considered.
