Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Deputy Pearse Doherty has today (Monday) called on An Post to retain Post Office services in Dunlewey and to immediately advertise the branch licence to all interested parties.
Deputy Doherty’s comments come following a meeting he hosted today in Dunlewey between a local derogation, Public Representatives and An Post officials to discuss the future of the village’s Post Office following a decision by the company to place the branch out to Public Consultation.
Speaking following today’s meeting, Deputy Doherty said:
“I organised today’s meeting with officials from An Post to allow for a local derogation to meet with the company, face to face, and to relay the wishes of the local community surrounding the future of their Post Office.
“Dunlewey Post Office, like in other rural areas, has been at the very heart of this community for generations and it was crucial that the company sat down to meet with the very people who would be directly affected by any decision made in relation to the branch.
