The long-term future of Gleneely Post Office is set to be decided this weekend.

The village service has been in jeopardy since long-term postmaster Kevin McLaughlin publicly announced his retirement last month.

Currently the Post Office remains open but will close next Friday, April 4, ending a long association with the McLaughlin family in Gleneely.

The deadline for expressions of interest passed on March 7 and An Post says it is considering ‘all the options’.

The company must now decide whether to formally tender for a new Gleneely Post Office or remove the service from the village altogether.
