Clarity and certainty needed on Cobh Sorting Office – Sherlock & Rasmussen



Cork East Labour TD Seán Sherlock and Cobh Cllr Cathal Rasmussen have demanded the Minister for Communications issue a statement on the future of the Cobh An Post Sorting Office.

“I have submitted parliamentary questions to Minister that I expect to be answered once the Dáil convenes next week. It is vital this sorting office is retained for Cobh.”

Said Cllr Rasmussen :“Centralisation may have been on the agenda pre Covid but to expect residents in Cobh to travel to Little Island with the rest of the Northside of Cork city and county to collect packages is a concerning move.
