Deputy Mattie McGrath has expressed his concern at the brazen attack on Cahir Post Office which was rammed at 5am on Wednesday morning last week with a digger stolen from the Iarnrod Eireann premises in the town:

“This was a premeditated and shocking assault on a vital community service for the people of Cahir and surrounding areas. I know that Henry Reidy and those who run the Post Office are decent hard-working people so it is some small mercy that this violent attack did not occur during working hours when someone could have been seriously injured. This attack highlights the need for a permanent, visible and readily available Garda presence in all our rural towns. There are individuals who will think nothing about endangering the property or our communities. I will be again be calling on Minister Shatter to ensure we have a fully resourced full-time Garda presence.”
