An Post to allow free postage to and from nursing homes


Stamps won't be needed for mail going in and out of nursing homes until next year.

An Post is offering to carry all cards and letters from today until the end of January at no charge.

The freepost offer also works for parcels up to two kilos - which would usually cost up to nine euro.

Anna McHugh says other community outreach is being brought back too to help people during the renewed public health restrictions.
