  1. Hope you enjoy your retirement as much as I’m enjoying mine for the last 13 years. Best wishes, Christina!

  2. Time brings with it changes is how it seems to be
    The Post Office run for sixty four years by Christina O Connell has closed in Derrinagree
    Another chapter in Duhallow’s history has come to a close
    That time is the instigator of change one would have to suppose

    On the Bernard Crowley interviewing of Donie Lucey on the Post Office closure on Millstreet L T V
    They talked of another chapter closure in Duhallow’s history
    In the twenty first century of places that have escaped change not any i could name
    That the changes keep on happening has always been the same

    Yes the changes keep on happening and one might say quite fast
    And only the memories remain of the past
    Another chapter has closed on Derrinagree’s history’s page
    But then we are in the prime of the technological age

    The Post Office Christina O Connell has worked in since her physical prime
    She has turned the key on the lock for the very last time
    To sixty four years of service to the Derrinagree community she did remain true
    She was loyal to her calling in life for to give her what is only her due

    The Derrinagree Post Office is now history
    One more small business in Duhallow confined to memory
    And Donie Lucey has his memories of the what used to be
    Of when he was younger in old Derrinagree.
