The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - NEWS -

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.”

Seán Con­nell de­liv­er­ing mail to Nor­rie Con­nell on his last day of a long and proud ser­vice to the lo­cal­ity.
