Unfortunately due to the sad passing of Ann McCartney who was the postmistress of the Post Office in Ballywaltrim, Bray, it has unfortunately had to close. The contract for the post office had recently been advertised and the closing date was yesterday, Friday 1 March.
Expressing his condolences Deputy Brady said “I which to extend my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Ann, she will be sorely missed by everyone in the community.”
“I have been working with An Post to try find a way to keep it open until a new contractor was appointed; unfortunately they say they couldn’t find a temporary solution. This is a fantastic Post Office, with brilliant staff and is an important part of the community and is an important social outlet for many people, particularly the elderly.”
“Myself and my colleague Dermot ‘Daisy’ O’Brien are putting pressure on An Post to ensure that the Post Office is reopened as quickly as possible and that the brilliant staff are accommodated.”
