A Fine Gael Cllr in Co Donegal has claimed that the government are not to blame for the closure of 161 post offices around the country

Donegal is facing the highest amount of closures, 13 are to close there, with 4 in Sligo and another 4 in Leitrim.

Fianna Fail have accused the government of being ‘anti-rural Ireland’.

But Cllr Martin Harley has said a lot of the closures are happening because the postmasters have simply decided to take early retirement….
