Ireland is finally to get a formal postcode system. The Irish government has confirmed that it is to go ahead with a plan to launch the system in 2015. The new postcodes will use a seven character alphanumeric system in the format A65B2CD, and existing Dublin codes will be incororated in the first phase where such postcodes have achieved a status value!
Unique codes will be issued to every property, or as the Irish government puts it, every postbox. So the challenge of finding a home address in ‘the country’ will become a thing of the past…hopefully.
This is welcome news for Bishopsgate and TENESO Europe SE and the introduction of postcodes will bring significant benefits to our service offering. We will keep you fully updated as the project is rolled out and how it may affect you.
