HC Deb 26 June 1906 vol 159 cc773-4
MR. McKILLOP (Armagh, S.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General if he will state the reasons for the removal, in October last, of the post office, which has been situate at Maghery, Moy, county Armagh, for the past sixty years, to Derrylee, two miles distant, and in the same delivery and only two miles distant from Tamnamore; and whether, seeing that Maghery is an important navigation station and tourist resort on the shore of Lough Neagh, and Derrylee an inland hamlet of a few houses only, and in view of the public meetings held in the district protesting against the change, he will say what postal and telegraph facilities are at present provided for the residents of Maghery, and for the requirements of the local industries in its neighbourhood, and state what steps are being taken to establish a post office and telegraph station in Maghery.


I will look into the matter.
