Post Office Network Needs New Beginning - Brian Stanley TD
Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Communications Brian Stanley TD has welcomed the announcement by An Post to invest in the Post Office Network. Teachta Stanley said that although this is a positive beginning, it must be pursued further so that we have a revitalised post office network providing important services to communities.
Deputy Stanley said:
“The announcement of a €50 million investment modernising the post offices is to be welcomed. With additional services being provided, new locations and opening times, we hope this is the start of revitalising our post office network.
“There is positive news also of no forced closer of any post offices and that there is a commitment on minimum coverage levels for Post Offices.
“To date there has been much time wasted with a series of reports beginning published. There are international examples where the Post Office Network forms a vital part of community life with a multitude of services.
"Post Offices have the potential to provide many different services and be a hub in communities.”
