Clifford-Lee post officesPictured at the public meeting in Lusk about the future of post offices in the locality are Cllr Brian Dennehy, Timmy Dooley TD and Senator Lorraine Clifford-Lee

Local Fianna Fáil senator, Lorraine Clifford-Lee has said the people of Rush and Lusk very much value their local post office, and that it is crucial that everything is done to protect this vital in our community.

Clifford-Lee held a recent public meeting on the matter with local Fianna Fáil councillor Brian Dennehy and the party’s Spokesperson for Communications, Timmy Dooley TD in Murray’s in Lusk.

Commenting following the meeting, the Donabate based senator said: “Cllr Dennehy and I have been keen to provide the opportunity for people in the north county to raise their concerns, speak about how they see their local post office changing, and impress upon our party’s spokesperson, their demand for their post office to be protected.

“In recent weeks, we have heard that the Government are considering closing up to 300 post offices, some of which could be in North County Dublin.

 All too often, the Government talks about increasing the number of services on offer in our post offices, but they fail to identify which services that want to be provided in them.

“Fianna Fáil has consistently raised the precarious position of the post office network and is leading the charge for this Government to up its game, invest in the post office network, and secure its future in our area.”
