HC Deb 03 September 1895 vol 36 cc1547-8

On behalf of the hon. Member for the Southern Division of Cork County Mr. E. Barry, I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he can explain why Clonakilty does not enjoy the same mail advantages as the other towns in South and West Cork; and what steps, if any, will be taken to place Clonakilty on a level with the neighbouring towns in the matter of postal accommodation?


The Postmaster General regrets that it is not practicable to improve the present postal service of Clonakilty. It is on a branch line of railway, and has a good night mail service by car to and from Bandon, and a day mail service by railway.
