Ireland is the only country in the European Union without a postcode system. That is about to change! A National postcode system is close to being introduced.

Communications Minister Pat Rabbitte has said, “The final tender for a national postcode system was issued last week; the responses will be evaluated by the Department during August and I will bring a comprehensive proposal to Government for approval in September.”

The system is due to be finalised by the Autumn. I guess we’ll have to wait till then to see just what the format of our codes will be.
