Iconic north Longford post office to shut its doors forever tomorrow

Tomorrow will mark the end of an era for north Longford when a longstanding post office closes.

Cloonagh post office at Mullinalaghta has been run by DP Finnegan for more than 40 years.

But it’s one of 160 such businesses that An Post is shutting, as part of a voluntary retirement package.
