OPW Building Letters. [Wicklow]

Office of Public Works (O.P.W.) Letters at National Archives, Dublin in Relation to Building Repairs and Erection of New Stations.

Co. Wicklow.

Greystones Coastguard Station. Co. Wicklow Office of Public Works. Dublin. 27 July 1877.

Sir, The rented boathouse of this station is so bad and damp that it is impossible to keep the Government stores in serviceable order, there is also a Rocket apparatus. It is in a very dilapidated state. There was a contract with the Board of Works to build a new house and slipway early last year and a dispute arising between the fishermen and the landlord, or Board of Works, about the site, the work was stopped there has been nothing done since then.

I would beg leave to request you would be pleased to move the proper Authorities to have the said boat-house and slip built as the station is very much in want of them.

I have the honour to be, Sir, your obedient servant. Richard Doherty. Chief Officer.

To Commander E.M. Dayrell RN. Kingstown.
