The Irish Natura and Hill farmers Association (INHFA) has expressed deep concern about the planned closure of more than 160 rural post offices on the post.

Farm body said that the decision by mail, combined with the failure of government to deliver “functional broadband in rural areas”, stressed a continuing erosion of rural Ireland.

“After the economic collapse, rural Ireland has seen a constant reduction in the services that if not countered will see large areas of our countryside, especially in the West, turned into a giant forest Park”, – said the press-Secretary of the INHFA Vincent Roddy.

Mr. Roddy said the government should invest in the network of post offices, not closing it.

“One of the options we can look at this addition to our citizen services in consultation and inclusion in our post offices.

“It would have helped a lot of people that are currently struggling to get answers from many government departments that mistakenly believe that the Internet service is a public service,” he said.

Mr. Roddy suggested that people should pay their motor tax or renewal of a driving licence at post offices. The decision to close a raft of rural post offices has already provoked angry reaction across the country, with a major protest held in Sligo last Saturday.

Hundreds of people came out to protest, which made its way from Connaughton road in GPU on O’connell street in Sligo.
