Post Office during the Troubles

Like many other large businesses, the Post Office suffered extensive physical damage to its premises during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. However, when damage did occur staff went to great lengths to minimise the local disruption to postal services. This was gratefully received by communities who viewed the Post Office as a central part of everyday life.

A total of 29 postal workers were killed during the course of the Troubles with around 150 people honoured every year for bravery.
