Delay in decision on future of Aughavas post office

The future of Aughavas post office in south Leitrim won’t be known for at least another two weeks.

An Post is considering closing it because McCaffrey’s bar and grocery shop, where it’s based, was sold recently and the postmistress is resigning.

Having completed a consultation phase with the community, An Post was expected to make a decision this week, but a spokesman told Shannonside FM this morning that its future wouldn’t be determined for about another fortnight.
