Donard Post Office set to close

Donard Post Office is set to close according to Wicklow TD Pat Casey.

Casey posted on Social Media on Wednesday evening he had been notified that Donard Post Office is part of the current round of 110 post office closures throughout the country and described it as another attack on West Wicklow and rural Ireland.

The closure would mean the residents of Donard and the surrounding areas would have to travel to Baltinglass, Blessington or Dunlavin to avail of payments and postal services.

In the past number of years An Post have closed offices in Laragh and Kilmacanogue and despite local protests from residents and politicians both have remained closed.

Should Donard Post Office close it will join other West Wicklow villages that have lost the services including Knockananna, Rathdangan, Kiltegan and Hollywood.
