An Post has confirmed a number of changes taking place at post offices across Co Mayo - as part of the transformation of the national post office network.

This includes the opening of a new post office in Belmullet next Monday.


 A number of post offices are on the move across Co Mayo, as An Post continues its plan of closing some offices and moving them into nearby business premises.

A new post office will open in Belmullet next Monday 25th February.

The new office will be co-located in the Centra store on Main Street - a short distance from the old post office - and the postmaster is Joseph Cuffe - proprietor of the Centra store.

On the same day, 5 postal staff in Belmullet, 3 in Glenamoy and one each in Geesala, Carrowteigue and Bangor Erris will relocate to Barnatra, where they will operate from a new mail hub for the area.

An Post says this will not affect local mail services.

Also, in the coming months, the post office in Swinford is to be located at Kennedy's Spar, while in Kiltimagh, the post office will co-locate with Londis on Main Street.

And in Ballyhaunis, An Post has readvertised the contract to provide post office services.

Midwest News understands a local business has turned down the opportunity, and it's now open for applications.

The company says the Ballyhaunis Post Office will remain at its current location until that process is complete.
