There’s nothing that causes more local political angst than the perilous situation of a local post office. No matter how far-flung, no matter how low the local headcount, even the people who never darken the door of the post office will miss it when it’s gone.

So the prospect of a permanent solution to the recurring constituency head-wreck will be sweet music to the ears of TDs as they travel up to Dublin today for the parliamentary week ahead.
