An Post must move quickly to replace Templeogue Post Office
– Call comes as An Post announces temporary closure of Templeogue Post Office –
John Lahart T.D. has called for An Post to move as quickly as possible to identify an alternative location within Templeogue Village for a new post office.
His call came after he received the following correspondence from An Post regarding the closure of the existing post office in the village due to “circumstances beyond An Post’s control.”
“Due to circumstances beyond our control Templeogue Post Office will close temporarily with effect from close of business on Tuesday 24th July 2018.
Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection customers will be transferred to Greenlea Road Post for service which is circa 2 kilometres distant from Templeogue Post Office. DEASP customers who wish to use an alternative Post Office can do so by making an application to the relevant DEASP Scheme Office.
All other post offices services will continue to be available in other neighbouring offices in the area.
Apologies to customers for the inconvenience but we would stress that this closure was due to circumstances beyond our control.”
Deputy Lahart said, “An Post management need to move as quickly as possible and make good on their commitment to ensure the temporary closure of the existing Post Office in Templeogue, is temporary, and that a replacement location be identified as soon as is practicable.
“People in Templeogue should not have to put up with much reduced postal services. I will continue discussions with An Post on this issue to ensure an alternative location is secured within Templeogue Village for a new post office.”
