Information - The IRISH MAIL was an important railway service, which apart from the obvious mail service, it also gave a regular fast connection for the Irish M.P.'s when commuting to Parliament, in London. All Ireland was still part of Britain at this time. The ferry ran from Dun Laoghaire (about 12 miles south of Dublin) to the Port of Holyhead. Anglesey is in the background.
