How You Can Help Protect Tarbert Post Office

 

  • A Message from
    Tarbert Development Association:

    A Chāirde,

    Like many communities in rural Ireland right now, we face uncertainty with regard to the future of our Post Office.

    At this moment, An Post are making decisions as to when and where closures will take place. These decisions seem to be based primarily on whether or not individual locations are financially viable.

    We need to ensure that each of us as individuals are utilising the services of our Post Office extensively enough for it to remain an attractive proposition for An Post to retain.

    If this means paying a monthly bill at the counter instead of online, doing your AIB or Ulster Bank banking through the Post Office , or simply by picking up your social welfare payments in person, then please do so to ensure that we all play our part.

    See also below on this page some of the great range of services you can currently avail of at our Post Office. Tarbert postmaster Michelle Woods will be happy to consult with you on any of these – just drop in or call the Post Office at 068 36100.

    A ‘Declaration of Support’ to show the commitment and solidarity of the Tarbert Community in our efforts to retain our Post Office is also available to sign at The Post Office until the end of May. Members of our overseas diaspora or people who are away from home at the moment can also use the form on this page to sign the Declaration.

    This Declaration of Support will be delivered to An Post at the end of May as a statement of our intent to retain our Post Office.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Niall Fitzgerald

    Chairman,

    Tarbert Development Association.
