The Railway and Canal Commission Court recently presided over a case involving the Waterford, Limerick, and Western Railway’s application for increased payment from the Postmaster-General. The railway company sought additional annual payment for the carriage of mails between Limerick and Limerick Junction, as well as between Limerick and Ennis.
The court’s judgment ultimately ruled in favor of the railway company, granting them an additional £8,000 per annum for their mail carriage services. This decision highlights the ongoing importance of railways in the efficient transportation of mail and the necessity of proper compensation for such services.
