The installation of new telephones, other than those in priority classes, in the Drogheda Exchange area has had to be deferred pending extension of the exchange equipment there. It is hoped that installation of the additional equipment will be completed within 2 months. Services will be provided for waiting applicants as soon as possible thereafter.
