Duncormick Post Office will reopen – Kelly

Cllr Anthony Kelly has welcomed the news that the Post Office in Duncormick village is due to reopen in the near future. The Wexford Sinn Féin Councillor had contacted An Post about the issue after being inundated with calls from concerned citizens in the parish of Rathangan who feared that their local post office had been closed permanently.
“I have been assured by An Post that the closure to Duncormick Post Office is temporary and that every effort is being taken by them to reopen the outlet as soon as possible,” Cllr Kelly said. “Duncormick Post Office was closed suddenly on the 24th of May this year. No reason was given to locals and this has led to many rumours circulating regarding the possible permanent closure of the service.

“Duncormick Post Office provides an important service in the parish of Rathangan. The local Sinn Féin cumann in Duncormick has been active in highlighting this issue. I have also been inundated with calls from concerned citizens in the parish who are finding the absence of the service very frustrating. Many old age pensioners and unemployed people have had to journey up to eight miles to the nearby post office in Bridgetown to claim their benefits.”
