convenient neighbors

O'Hehirs Bakery and Little Mamma's Ice Cream Parlour, the perfect match!  We have been in O'hehirs and they have some great breads, desserts and coffee.  Haven't been in the ice cream place yet but I'm not a big ice cream fan.

dunkineely an post



was closed down after an appeal lodged by the local community was rejected.  The closure was a part of a restructuring plan.
An Post have committed as part of the reformed network that communities with populations of over 500 people would have a post office, and 95 per cent of the population would always be within 15km of at least one post office.
The community is not happy.  The older folks go to the post to pick up their pensions,, pay bills and other things.  They probably don't have reliable internet access which makes it a bit tougher to pay bills online and now if they don't have transportation, they have to find a way to get to a post office designated to their area.  The an post building these people will be going to is in Bruckless 3 km away.  It's far enough that an older person wouldn't be able to walk and lack of a footpath just about makes it impossible.  They will need to arrange a ride which could be a problem for some of them.
