Wed, 15th May, 8pm in the Rainbow Hall, Kilmacthomas

Waterford Fianna Fáil TD is calling on those who want to want to protect the future of the post office network to attend her public meeting on Wednesday, 10th May at 8pm in the Rainbow Hall, Kilmacthomas.

“On the night, I will be joined by my party’s spokesperson on communications, Timmy Dooley who has consistently raised the precarious position of rural post offices, and is leading the charge for the Government to up its game, invest in the post office network, and secure its future.

“This is a chance for people in Waterford to raise their concerns, speak about how they see their local post office changing, and impress upon our spokesperson their demand for their post office to be protected.

“In recent weeks, we have heard that the Government are considering closing up to 300 post offices, some of which could be in Co. Waterford.

All too often, the Government talks about increasing the number of services on offer in our post offices, but they fail to identify which services that want to be provided in them.

“We want to hear ideas from the public about what services they want to see provided in their local post office.

“This is your chance to inform the discussion, and I would urge everyone with an interest in keeping the post office open to attend the meeting and have their voice heard,” concluded Butler.
