HC Deb 09 July 1917 vol 95 c1611
38. Mr. O'LEARY

asked the Postmaster-General whether he has completed his inquiries into the postal service throughout West Cork; and whether he proposes to give an earlier and improved service for the Castletown Bere district?


I have been in communication with the railway companies concerned, and I find that the use of the railway for the conveyance of mails in West Cork would involve a large increase of expenditure, for which there is no justification. I hope to arrange an improved service in the Castletown Bere district by means of a motor vehicle for the conveyance of mails between Drimoleague and Castletown Bere.
