As the campaign to save Ballygawley post office continues to gather momentum, this weekend the campaign took to local parishes where individual letters were signed by each community in Carraroe, Geevagh and Ballintogher.Approximately 99 letters were signed in Geevagh, 92 in Ballintogher and 178 in Carraroe.
The co-ordinator of the 'Save Ballygawley Post office' campaign Thomas Walsh told Sligo Today,
"We were once again overwhelmed with the support this weekend. We are hugely encouraged as a community with the many letters, phonecalls, texts and messages of support for the retention of the service.
“We urge everyone, as the close of submission on 2nd December approaches, to forward your letter of support to Mr Peter Gillespie, Retail Operations Manager, An Post, Wine Street, Sligo.
Following close of submissions next week, we will be urgently requesting a meeting with An Post, senior management to meet a delegation from our campaign where we will outline the necessity for the retention of our Post office".
