§ MR. P. A. M'HUGH (Leitrim, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that for five or six years past the Post Office authorities have decided to erect a new post office in Sligo; has a site been secured, and where; and can ho explain the delay in proceeding with the erection of the proposed new post office in Sligo.
§ MR. HANBURY
Advertisements for a site for a new post office at Sligo were issued in 1895, but none really suitable were offered. A site in Lower Knox Street and Bridgefoot Street, at a point known as Fish Corner, has now been purchased, and it is hoped that the building will be begun shortly. The delay has been due to the difficulty in finding a suitable site at a cost which the Department would be justified in paying.
