An Taoiseach Enda Kenny has welcomed new job creation by An Post at its mail delivery unit at Moneen, Castlebar. An Post has invested €2million in the facility in Castlebar since it opened in 2012 as a dedicated purpose-fitted mail-processing operation. There are 31 staff already working with An Post at Moneen and a further five new jobs will be created at the facility.
Taoiseach Kenny commented: "I visited the mail delivery unit at Moneen in January 2013 after it opened, and the purpose-fitted facility is a truly first class operation as the postal sector changes to new delivery formats considering the increase in parcel delivery via online retailers. An Post will be creating five new jobs at their facility in Moneen and this is strong evidence of increased economic activity in the Mayo area, which needless to say is a very welcome development."
