Lennox Robinson – Drama in the GPO

I am indebted to the son of a former Post Office man for this image of a Post Office programme featuring Lennox Robinson’s well-known play, Drama at Inish. Paddy Cahill was Head Messenger here in the GPO and was active in many different facets of Post Office life, including acting and stage management. The advent of television and subsequent technology largely eroded the one very strong tradition of employees organising dramatic, musical and various other societies as adjuncts to their work. Many people found a talent or honed a skill through their participation in these clubs and societies and the Post Office, as a major employer, was no exception.
