The Old Tara Post Office at Ross Cross,Co Meath. Those were the days of the old switch board with twenty six local subscribers and when a booked call to Dublin would take sometimes twenty minutes to get through if the lines were busy!!!!
The Old Post Office was run by my late Aunt Bea who was a great favourite with all who called for the stamps, childrens allowance, pensions and to send telegrams. Independents and Irish Presses were collected each morning by local people who had them on order. Great happy memories!!! Nothing left of the Old Post Office now except a few bits of the walls almost hidden by foliage! Would have cost a fortune to maintain!
