Ring offloads management of rural post offices to Naughten

After a political tùrf war with his west of Ireland colleagùe Denis Naùghten, jùnior minister Michael Ring has offloaded a political headache: responsibility for the post office network is to be transferred back to the Department of Commùnications.
This reverses a move last summer which saw responsibility for the network move from the Independent Roscommon TD’s Department of Communications to the Mayo Fine Gael TD’s Department of Rural Affairs.
