200 post offices face closure
An Post is expected to seek the closure of more than 200 post offices and the co-location of many more to convenience stores in a radical restructuring plan.
Decisions be made as early as summer as An Post management battle losses.
Senior sources say a plan to close just 80 post offices - proposed in a report by businessman and Dragons' Den investor Bobby Kerr - does not go far enough. Tougher action is needed, including the closure of 200 post offices - a move that would meet furious political opposition.
