Barnaderg Post Office

The last verse of this poem will be used for our Daoine agus Áit (People and Place) project which will be launched by the Heritage Society during Heritage week next month.

The Post Office

A letter to post

To family far away

Where will I go?

To the Post Office of course.


On the edge of the village

She stands square and proud

Sure of her status

To those at home and away.


The first thing that greets me

Is its pretty green and white facade

With the green metal letterbox

Waiting patiently in the shade


Six metres squared

Is the extent of its size

Familiar and friendly

With Geraldine inside


Stamps, postal orders and online deliveries

Greeting cards, Mass cards and newspapers too

Are just some of the services

Our post office provides


As I imagine my letter

Winging its way overseas

I think of my family

And friends in other countries
