End of the road for Gleneely Post Office

An Post decides not to replace village service

Gleneely Post Office will close for the final time tomorrow, Friday.

Gleneely Post Office will close its doors for the final time tomorrow, Friday, after An Post this week decided not to advertise for a new postmaster to replace the retiring Kevin McLaughlin.

The deadline for expressions of interest passed on March 7 last and the Inishowen Independent understands that one local person registered an intention to take on the service. A meeting at the Gleneely Colts clubhouse in February also heard locals strongly support the retention of the service.

However in a letter to the Gleneely Development Association on Tuesday, An Post confirmed that the Post Office will close on Friday, April 4 for the final time.

After that date all Department of Social Protection payments, including jobseekers and pensions, will be transferred to Culdaff Post Office.
