Conradh na Gaeilge members demonstrate their support for “the protection of essential services for Gaeltacht communities.”
Conradh na Gaeilge are seeking a meeting with An Post, with the Minister for Communications and with the Minister for the Gaeltacht to ensure that An Post will “not end services through Irish in Gaeltacht areas as part of their current redundancy process, and to see that Gaeltacht communities will not be denied essential services through Irish”.
An Post defend closure of up to 150 post offices saying redundancies will not be ‘random’ and rural communities will be supported (The Irish Sun)

Bizarre letter from An Post sent to my neighbour who has moved. Is this the new definition of a Facebook Post?
Following the Che Guevara controversy, An Post has issued a stamp to mark the centenary of the apparitions of Fatima.
Feargal Purcell writes:
The stamp, designed by 2b:creative, features a statue of Our Lady that stands in the Oratory of the Archbishop of Armagh, Eamon Martin. Bishop Martin, who is Roman Catholic Primate of All Ireland purchased the statue in 2015, when he led a pilgrimage from Armagh and Belfast to Fatima in preparation for the centenary of the apparitions.
The International stamp (€1.35), along with a specially designed First day Cover envelope, is available from main post offices, from the stamp counters at Dublin’s GPO or online at The First Day Cover includes a quote from the sixth and final apparition at Fatima.

I’m making contact from the An Post Communications Department about the ‘One Job’ post by Chompsky at 12:26pm today.
Rather than being an error, as per the ‘One Job’ caption, a member of the public has peeled away the vinyl advertisement and replaced it, upside down, on the An Post meter box. This has been pointed out in one of the comments below the post by an observant/sensible reader of broadsheet.ie
Meter boxes are An Post property for the collection of Meter Post (from businesses) in that area. So, we consider this activity at best a nuisance and at worst, vandalism, as it’s a cost to our business – in putting it to rights again – which it will be, by tomorrow morning.
While we appreciate knowing about this, we’d rather not give oxygen to, or encourage the defacing of our post and meter boxes….
Unspecified An Post office.
Spotted today. Is our Postmaster looking to the future?
