HC Deb 28 July 1896 vol 43 c826

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, when the late postmaster at the Old Head of Kinsale died, and how long the post office was carried on in his house after his death; and, when the post office was removed, and what the cause of the removal was?


The late sub-postmaster, who was employed at Garrylucas, not at Old Head, died on 12th March last. The office was temporarily carried on by his daughter until the 22nd May, when it was removed to Old Head. The object of the removal was the convenience of the majority of the inhabitants, the bulk of the correspondence being for persons living beyond Garrylucas.
