LYRE THANKS TO POSTMAN SEÁN FOR LONG SERVICE
NEARLY 40 years’ of dedicated service to the mail was marked in Lyreacrompane this week as the community gave thanks to its postman on his retirement.
Seán Connell was lauded this week as he delivered the last post in a career spanning 38 years.
As far as Lyreacrompane can make out, Seán was the longest-serving postman there.
And at a time of drastic reduction in the post office network, the community say his dedication to the mail serves as an example of just how important the service is to rural Ireland.
“We appreciate Seán’s long contribution and wish him a long and happy retirement,” local woman Kay O’Leary said.
“With regard to the other part of the Postal Service, we are delighted that Lyreacrompane still has its Post Office, a very much appreciated institution in the area. We wish our post master, Johnny Nolan, all the best for the future.”
