Sgt Robert Con­roy will be re­tir­ing from An Garda Síochána Best wishes to Sgt Robert Con­roy, who will be re­tir­ing from An Garda Síochána on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 10, There will be func­tion to cel­e­brate his ca­reer in Her­aghty’s Bar on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 10, at 9 p.m. ab­so­lutely shocked and sad­dened at An Post’s de­ci­sion to re­ject our sub­mis­sion. It was done five days be­fore we sent it to Dublin, This is a bru­tal at­tack on our elderly peo­ple who have been ter­ri­bly in­con­ve­nienced es­pe­cially those who have no trans­port. The tim­ing and de­sign of this plan by a Semi-State body was ‘de­spi­ca­ble’.

The above group have now stepped up their cam­paign as we feel that An Post’s Pro­to­col is an­ti­quated and sub­se­quently needs to change.


Notes can be emailed to sheil­amelly@eir­com.net be­fore 9 p.m. on Thurs­day.
