An Post confirmed some three weeks ago that a large number of rural post offices had applied for the An Post's voluntary retirement package, which would then lead to widespread closures of post offices across the country.

When they originally announced the news, An Post said that the packages would "likely result in the closure of 161 post offices out of a network of 1,111 post offices."

It was announced by the company on Tuesday that – due to a deal reached between An Post and the Irish Postmasters' Union – that 159 post offices will now be closed across the country.

16 of these have already closed. According to An Post, 950 post offices are to be retained.

An Post also confirmed that all 159 set to close are in locations with populations of less than 500 people. They also said that all of the offices which are due to close are within 15km of at least one other post office.

Closing post offices will be consolidated with neighbouring offices, ensuring their viability, the company has said.
