This morning.

An Post is ‘closing in on a deal to relocate’ its headquarters from the GPO to the Exo Building at Point Square in the Dublin docklands.

Via Irish Times:

The company is understood to have entered into exclusive negotiations to rent at least 120,000sq ft at the property from its owners, a European fund advised by Tristan Capital Partners and local partners SW3 Capital. The Exo, which is under construction, will comprise 169,150sq ft of Grade A office space upon completion later this year.

….While An Post’s GPO headquarter operations now look set to be relocated to the Exo Building, its public post office and the GPO Witness History Museum will continue in their current location…

Harrumph/Fight!

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.
