Mail deliveries today to be impacted after suspect device found at An Post centre

Disruption was caused by the evacuation of the Mails Centre and National Parcel Hub in Laois yesterday.

AN POST IS advising that mail deliveries today are likely to be affected by the disruption caused following the discovery of a suspect device at its sorting centre in Portlaoise yesterday.

The Mails Centre and National Parcel Hub in the Laois  town was evacuated for a time yesterday after a suspect device was found and an Army Bomb Disposal Unit was tasked.

A package contained historical ammunition which was found to be inert and the scene was declared safe. An Post has worked through the night in an attempt to make up for lost time.

However the postal service is advising that deliveries will be affected today and has asked customers to check its official website and Twitter account.
