to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether he is aware that
James Fenlon, a National school teacher of Carlow Graigue, attended
a meeting at Carlow Graigue on 1st June of this year, the meeting in
question being held with the object of establishing a memorial to
the rebels who fell in 1798, and that James Fenlon was member of the

Post Office From Parliamentary Debates
Parliamentary Debate interesting snippets from the past, this one in
reference to the Carlow Post office in 1888'
Post Office (Ireland) accommodation at Carlow.
20 April 1888 vol 325 cc29-30 29
the Postmaster General, If he is aware of the very inadequate Post
Office accommodation in the town of Carlow, which consists of one
small room in a private house, not capable of holding half-a-dozen
persons without overcrowding, making it difficult to transact
business, and causing great inconvenience and delay to the public;
if he is aware that the people and Town Commissioners of Carlow
think that a public office would be the most desirable for so
important a place, and that a good and central site, the old
Assembly Rooms in Dublin Street, may be easily procured for the
purpose; and, if he will take immediate steps to remedy the present
most unsatisfactory state of things.
Postmaster General (Mr. Raikes) (Cambridge University)
aware that the Post Office at Carlow is no longer large enough for
the convenient performance of the business; and negotiations have
been carried on, not only with the landlord of the present office
for an enlargement of it, but also with another person for larger
premises altogether, but in both cases without satisfactory result.
The Postmaster has, therefore, been instructed to advertise for
better premises, and the first announcement appeared in The Carlow
Sentinel on Saturday last. The amount of Post Office business at
Carlow is scarcely sufficient to warrant the Department in incurring
the expense of providing a building specially for its accommodation.
