Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Automatic Telephone System in County Kildare.
No exchange conversions to automatic working are likely within the areas mentioned prior to 31st March, 1962. It is expected that eight exchanges in County Kildare and three exchanges in County Wicklow which are within local call range of some Kildare exchanges will be converted by 31st March, 1963.
Would the Minister mind naming them, please?
The eight exchanges in the Curragh Camp group comprise Curragh Camp, Droichead Nua, Kilcullen, Brannockstown, Calverstown, in Kildare and Dunlavin, Colbinstown and Donard in Wicklow.
