An Post asked to advertise tender for Knocknagoshel Post Office

An Post is being asked to advertise the tender for Knocknagoshel Post Office.

The facility is one of 12 in the county that are to close after accepting redundancy packages from An Post.

An Post didn’t offer a tender for the continuation of the post office service in Knocknagoshel after the postmistress decided to shut.

The community, however, are hoping to appeal this decision and get the tender for the service advertised; a meeting is being held in Knocknagoshel Community Centre at 9 o’clock tonight to organise this.

Kieran McAuliffe of Kieran’s XL, who’s interested in running the post office, says An Post is saying the service isn’t viable as they’re only taking in the population within the speed limit zone at the edge of the village and not the wider community.
