§ MR J. P. FARRELL (Cavan, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if he has received a petition from the inhabitants of Crossea, Carnan, and other townlands of the parish of Ardagh, county Longford, in favour of the opening of a sub-post office in the townland of Crossea; and will the prayer of the petition be granted?
§ MR. HANBURY
A post office at Crossea was authorised in 1894, but the services of a suitable person to act as sub-postmaster could not be obtained. The hon. Member only sent me the petition he mentions yesterday, and I have forwarded it to the Postmaster General to-day, so there has been no time to decide the matter yet.
