The Post Office in Kilmeaden is to remain open following the withdrawal of the postmaster’s resignation.
The post office was closed temporarily last week after the postmaster’s decision to resign prompting protests in the village.
Campaigners pleaded with An Post to keep what they feel is a vital service open.
A strategic review of the national post office network is currently ongoing.
FF Cllr John O’Leary said the reversal of the decision means the Kilmeaden postoffice will now be treated on a par with other post offices in that review.
He said there’s great relief in the area but appealled to people to use their local service if they don’t want to lose it.
