They had very cushy well paid unionised jobs for essentially unskilled workers.

Plenty of work out there but they might get a funt up the hole in terms of the real world....much less cushy.

I wish them well.
That would make sense if the other Sorting Offices were closing as well. But they're not. The strange thing imho on this is that Athlone, AND Portlaoise, and Dublin are staying open.

Do An Post own the actual site in Little Island? If they do then maybe the money to be made from selling the site was a contributory factor.

They weren't unskilled workers by the way, and I don't know what you mean by cushy jobs but I suspect you never had to work shift work. It's ok when you're young but from about 30 on it gets more and more difficult.
