Criticism of new signage for Sligo Post Office that is due to be closed next week

Criticism of new signage for Sligo Post Office that is due to be closed next week

There has been much criticism of the decision of An Post to incorporate new branding on Gurteen Post Office, even though the office is due to close on Thursday next, February 28.

Images of the new branding and signage were posted by The Crossbar pub in Gurteen in which they expressed the opinion the decision further highlights a lack of appreciation of matters concerning rural Ireland.

The tweet has generated widespread reaction with Gavan Reilly, Virgin News political correspondent describing the post as "tweet of the year."

In reply to a question regarding why the decision was taken to carry out the work at Gurteen Post Office, even though it is to be closed next week, An Post commented that Gurteen, "as a working post office, was fitted with the new collateral earlier this week as were other Sligo post offices."
