The Last Post (sort of)

You can excuse the puns in the title :rotfl:

Anyway last Thursday Warrenpoint post office as we knew it on Church street ceased to be and has now moved to it's new home in Eurospar. I asked Aidan McKinley forum member and postman to get a few photos for me to mark this occasion and here they are.

What is going in the old P.O.?

I remember the P.O. whenever it was
opposite the Dock.

Then Church St.

Was there a place in between those?

Re: Elizabeth (Goucher) Rainey.

Would this Elizabeth Goucher be the same lady who worked in Forest Brook?
If so, I worked with her there in the early 60s. She was known as Liz to us all.

Happy Days!
