That is a matter for An Post. These are decisions that An Post must make. An Post gave a commitment that there will be a post office in every community of more than 500 people and within 15 km of 95% of the rural population and 3 km of the urban population. For example, all island post offices are being retained. Where a post office in a Gaeltacht area closes, An Post will ensure that services through Irish are available at a neighbouring post office. An Post has put in place commitments around the sustainability of and access to the post office network throughout the country.
