Vol. 283 No. 9

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Leitrim Telephone Exchange.


asked the Minister for Posts and Telegraphs if it is proposed to erect a new auto-manual telephone exchange at Carrick-on-Shannon, County Leitrim; and, if so, when work will commence.

It is proposed to erect a new automatic exchange— not an auto-manual exchange—at Carrick-on-Shannon. The Commissioners of Public Works expect that the erection of the automatic exchange building will commence next year.

Will the automatic exchange in Carrick-on-Shannon include extra lines to Ballinamore, County Leitrim.

I understand that under automatic conditions Carrick-on-Shannon will be the switching centre for all exchanges in the Boyle - Carrick - on - Shannon - Drumshanbo charge groups.
