An Post have re-advertised an opportunity to head up a new post office in Killeigh, following a lack of suitable applications arising from a previous advertisement in May.
Joe and Bridget Plunkett are set to finish up the post service they’ve offered for years from the building in Killeigh they also call home at the end of this month.
An Post says it’s committed to getting a new contractor and facility in place in Killeigh as soon as possible, but has admitted this week the process will not now be a seamless one.
Concerned locals in Killeigh have formed a committee, and are fearful of losing the local service they say is much needed.
An Post’s new advertisement offers the chance to “put your stamp on a unique business opportunity in Killeigh”, and a spokesperson for the company said locals are being encouraged to consider it.
The company is looking for a new retail partner with proven retail and business development skills, who crucially can also access a suitable premises.
Anyone interested in the opportunity is asked to contact Dan Egan on 042 9325206 or firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Friday, July 25 next.
