HC Deb 30 March 1908 vol 187 cc63-4
MR. KENDAL O'BRIEN (Tipperary, Mid.)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether he can see his way to establish a Sub-Post Office at Curragunneen, near Roscrea, County Tipperary, to meet the pressing requirements of the people of the district; whether he is aware that several of the inhabitants have to travel six, seven, and eight miles to post their letters in order to save a day in the delivery of them; and whether, having regard to the fact that if an evening collection of letters were established at Curragunneen there would be no loss whatever sustained by the Post Office, he will take steps to meet the wishes of the people of the district.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton). There is already a Post Office at Curragunneen, but hitherto it has not been possible to provide an evening collection except by incurring expense which would not have been justified. I am glad to say, however, that the circumstances have changed, and, as the postman will be provided with a cycle, it will be possible for him to make a collection from that office at about 3.50 p.m.
