The retirement of the current Postmaster in Cashel Post Office may lead to the relocation of the Post Office in the town.  Mr John Morrissey is to retire at the end of March 2024 meaning that the contract is currently being advertised by An Post with a November 3rd closing date for applicants.

Former Cashel Councillor Tom Wood says the situation is causing concern that the location of Post Office Services in the town may change and have an impact on existing footfall in the town centre. An Post owns the current building on Main Street and has operated there since 1934. Mr Woods referenced the relocation of Thurles Post Office from Liberty Square to the Shopping Centre in 2019 – the building at Liberty Square has been vacant since the closure and businesses reported a drop in footfall associated with the closure
