Contrary to recent rumours and scaremongering by some politicians, the An Post Office on the North Circular Road is NOT CLOSING and local services are not being reduced. Senior management in An Post have decided to convert the Phibsborough Post Office from being one run directly by the company to one being run by a contractor. Our local Minister, Paschal Donohoe T.D. secured a commitment from An Post that this change “will not in any way change the range or extent of the services offered” in Phibsborough Post Office. Both myself and Minister Paschal Donohoe will work together with the local community to ensure that this commitment from An Post to provide Phibsborough with the “highest level of services for the future” is honoured and implemented in full. In addition to this, An Post have confirmed to Minister Donohoe and I that no losses in employment numbers are envisaged with existing staff in the Phibsborough An Post office having a number of options open to them, including the opportunity to continue working in the office or elsewhere within An Post. Let me once again, reiterate that Phibsborough Post Office is NOT CLOSING!
