Never mind Troops – get the postboxes out?

Sinn Fein have been given a quick and not so positive response from An Post in the Republic over their call to have post boxes closed. The post boxes in question happen to have been used from the pre-partition period and have Royal Insigia on them.

Update: In something of a disparity with their southern colleagues (not the first time – don’t mention the Euro), Sinn Fein in Omagh dont mind postboxes with Royal Insignia on them so long as they are painted green.
