Ballydesmond Post Office reopens

Ballydesmond Post Office has reopened today under new management.

There had been fears about the future of the facility when Anne Vaughan retired at the end of February, ahead of her 80th birthday.

The Vaughan family had run the post office in the village since the 1930s.

Following local concern An Post advertised the contract.

Seamus Kearney who also runs Centra in Ballydesmond has taken over running the post office and opened the doors earlier today.
