AREAS in Patrickswell and Clarina have been left without postal deliveries for over two week due to an ongoing ‘unofficial dispute’, according to Fine Gael councillor for the area Dan McSweeney.
“Over the last number of weeks, residents have been in contact informing me they have not received post. Over two weeks ago I flagged this matter with An Post and have been informed this is due to changes they are implementing.”
“It is extremely disappointing that the people of Patrickswell and Clarina are not receiving the service they deserve and is a matter that needs to be addressed immediately. I have been assured that senior management are doing all in there control to address the issue,” Cllr McSweeney commented.
Issues with post have also been raised in Corbally, Rhebogue and Garryowen by Labour councillor Conor Sheehan.
Cllr Sheehan said that during discussions with An Post it emerged that annual leave and people out sick led to a “perfect storm” of issues with post in the city.
Cllr Sheehan said that while post in Garryowen and Rhebogue should be back, An Post are working to ensure that routes in Corbally and Lower Park are rectified as soon as possible.
