Wicklow post offices among national closures

Post offices in Coolboy and Donard were included in an An Post list of post offices to face closure.

Coolgreany on the Wicklow/Wexford border also faces closure.

Over 150 post offices all over the country are set to be axed in a new deal between An Post and The Irish Postmasters’ Union.

An Post have stated that post offices were closed in places with populations of less than 500.

The postal service also said that any decisions to close certain post offices were also influenced by how close they were to an alternative post office.

Counties in the west of Ireland will take the brunt of the impact with 45 closures across Galway, Mayo, and Donegal.
