The Grant Thornton report warned of "unrestrained" closures by July if there isn't a change.

A Monaghan postmaster says there'll be hundreds of post office closures this summer if the Government doesn't provide financial supports.

Irish Postmasters Union members are being invited to "emergency local meetings" to discuss how the service will continue without the intervention identified by Grant Thornton.

A ballot on work stoppages isn't ruled out, due to continued delays in the implementation of the recommended €17 million Public Service Obligation.

Ciaran McEntee, the union Vice-President and Threemilehouse Postmaster says there's been no action from politicians to get more services into post offices over the past three years.

The Grant Thornton report warned of "unrestrained" closures by July if there isn't a change, and Ciaran says it's a real possibility.
