HC Deb 13 January 1916 vol 77 c1778
41. Mr. P. MEEHAN

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that the closing of Killeshin post office, Queen's County, has caused public inconvenience, and imposes on old age pensioners and the public generally in that district a journey of from three to six miles to the nearest post office; and, seeing that the saving effected by the closing of the Killeshin office amounts to about £12 annually, will he give directions for the reopening of this office?


This office was recently abolished on the occurrence of a vacancy, as the business transacted was insignificant; and I regret that in existing conditions I am unable to restore it in view of the loss incurred on the postal services in the district. I regret any inconvenience to the inhabitants, but arrangements are being made for the establishment of a letter box in the village.
