A protest march  in support of the retention of rural post offices in Mayo will take place tomorrow afternoon in Castlebar.

The protest is being organised by a newly formed committee, under the banner “Save our Post Offices in Mayo”, and will get underway at 2.30 pm from the car park of the Holy Rosary Church in Castlebar and will proceed through the town.

Gerry Loftus is one of the organisers of the protest and he told Midwest News today that he believes public pressure is making a difference in changing the views of politicians to insist that An Post retain rural post offices.

Earlier this week An Post announced the closure of 159 rural post offices nationally and 11 of these are in county Mayo.
