Postmasters from around Ireland, including Paddy McCann, president of the Irish Postmasters Union (above with chain of office) protest Post Office closures driven by An Post.
A total of 200 post offices could be closed under new cost-cutting measures.
The postmasters are demanding the publication and implementation of a Government commissioned report by businessman Bobby Kerr on the future of the Post Office Network which was finalised last year.
Mr Kerr’s analysis suggested 80 post office closures and an investment of €56 million in the postal network.
