Over 150 people turned out at Kill’s Community Centre on Monday night to voice their concerns over the permanent closure of the village’s post office.

Kill postmaster Anton Lennon retired last year, following a raid at the post office. Since then, An Post has decided not to reopen the post office but members of the close-knit community say this is not good enough.

At Monday’s meeting, locals described to TDs Paudie Coffey, Ciara Conway and John Halligan and Senator David Cullinane the impact that the long-term closure of the local post office was having on people.
