Did you read the newspapers recently? Looks like the powers that be want to close up to 200 post offices and you know well that the first to close will be those in Rural areas. We really need to stand up and defend ourselves and lobby our politicians before it’s too late. Dublin dictates everything, wants everything and then they have the cheek to complain about the price of accomodation and traffic congestion and guess who created it? Themselves,  because everything stops south of the Red Cow. We are becoming more and more the forgotten people. Wake up local politicians and fight for your constituents.
