Danny Healy Rae TD and Cllr. Maura Healy Rae have been in touch to express their satisfaction at the conclusion of the Ballydesmond Post Office saga.
Public meetings and community fears that the village could lose its Post Office surfaced as the family who ran the business since the 1930s declared they were retiring.
Breakthrough in Ballydesmond
With the local Post Office in many country areas under severe threat of closure, the breakthrough in the Ballydesmond case is a chink of light in a dark time for rural Ireland.
“We are glad that the campaign to retain the Post Office in Ballydesmond Village has been resolved.
Both Sides of the Border
“This is welcome news for the people of this area and we want to thank all the local people on both sides of the border for putting in such an effort to ensure that this happened.
“We wish Seamus Kearney and his family all the best with this new venture,” said the joint statement from Deputy Danny and Cllr. Maura Healy Rae.
