If someone takes the job, the post office stays open.The crowd in charge happily let a mail centre close here with the loss of over 200 jobs. Do you really think Blarney is high on their radar?
Loads of work for drivers etc as An Post has increased deliveries and invested hugely in competing with DHL & UPS etc who are also hiring.If someone takes the job, the post office stays open.
Mail has dropped hugely in the last few years and the mail centre wasn't needed and it saved the company 10 million a year. A good lot of the staff were redeployed, around 80 of the drivers based there afaik.
Same story with High Street PO - the postmaster is retiring and they haven't been able to find a replacement
