Closure of post office regrettable – Cullinane
Sinn Féin TD for Waterford David Cullinane said today that the news that Kilmeaden post office is to be temporarily closed pending a wider review is a worrying and regrettable development.
Deputy Cullinane said:
“I have been informed by An Post that it intends to close Kilmeaden Post Office on a temporary basis while a strategic review of the national post office network is undertaken.
“This is a regrettable and worrying decision.
“Post offices play a vital and necessary role in local communities in terms of services and amenities.
“It is a blow to Kilmeaden that the post office is to be close.
“This closure is down to the resignation of the former postmaster and not due to any review of demand or need.
“I hope that An Post will see to it that the closure is not permanent and I will be raising this issue with the Minister as a matter of urgency.”
