They were originally supposed to have been introduced in 2007/8.
Seemingly now the story is that everyone is going to be notified of their new postcode by the end of this month. Not a lot of information on their website ? Will there be a facility to look up eircodes manually or am I going to have to get in touch with all my existing contacts to find out what their postcode is ? The amount of time it takes the Irish government to roll out major infrastructural projects is ludicrous. The first country in Europe to adopt a postcode system was Germany and it was done over a couple of months in 1943 all this in the middle of a war when postal addressing was kind of academic what with all the main streets in their major cities being reduced to piles of rubble ?
