We have been reliably informed that Monday, July 29, 2013, has been set as a provisional date for the ending of postal deliveries from Fethard post office.

From, or soon after that date, all delivery staff at Fethard will be relocated to Clonmel from where all future deliveries for the area will be carried out.

This will take place as part of An Post’s policy of ‘consolidation’ whereby smaller delivery offices are to be relocated to larger delivery service units.

Killenaule, Mullinahone and Ballingarry staff will be relocated to Thurles.

Counter services and mail collections will remain the same.

Is this yet another step in Fethard’s identity being consumed by the larger centres? Fethard, Co. Tipperary was always good enough on an envelope. Not any more?
