Licencee Peter O'Reilly

Peter O'Reilly (1889-1952) was the licencee of the Carrollee Hotel, Kingaroy for approximately 4 months. In his resume of hotels, Peter lists the Carrollee between his 1926 licence at the Metropolitan Hotel, Maryborough and the 1927 licence at the Mellum Club Hotel, Landsborough.

It would appear that Peter was only licencee for this brief period from late 1926 to early 1927. The succession of licencees would likely be, John Francis Conroy, Peter O'Reilly to Peter Paul O'Brien.

J. F. Conroy applied to be the transferee of The Grand Hotel, Cairns on 20 January 1927.[2]

In February of 1927, the Licensing Court approved an application by Peter O'Reilly of the Carrollee Hotel for leave of absence till May of 1927 and that Peter Paul O'Brien was being left in charge for that period.[3]

Peter Paul O'Brien was licencee of the Carrollee Hotel, Kingaroy around May 1927 and for a period of 1 year and 10 months, having taken over from J. F. Conroy.[4]and preceeded Peter O'Reilly as licencee of the Commercial Hotel, Eumundi. A Mr. H. Lingard is reported as having quite recently taken over the licence as of 29 November 1928.[5] In April 1929, it was reported that Mr. J. Donovan of the Carrollee Hotel, has disposed of the lease, licence, and goodwill , to Mr. Watts.
