As far as I know we don't have postcodes at the min.
But I think the gov. are going to introduce it some time soon. That's what I heard anyway!

tbh would love if we brought them in - every web form requires them and then rables back at me about using "00000" or "n/a"

Is it for an account on-line ?
If it is. Try the phone code 00353 often works or just put in the Zip code IRL

Nope, though they should bring them in. I know that there's a thing called the Geodirectory which is a joint enterprise between An Post and the Ordnance Survey. It gives every building in the country its own unique geocode.

So just put down "n/a" every time? Works for me.

I really don't understand the whole obsession with having postcodes. They're a pain in the hole.

Yeah, there are some advantages but more hassle than they're worth.

Sometimes I think people just want them cause they have them in Britain and that we're some way inferior for not having them.

We're not. And we don't need them. Our population doesn't warrant such a system.

By the way, there's a fairly long discussion on this top in Politics.

I hate it when you go onto sites for freebies and have to put in postcode and it says your postcode is invalid.

Of course it's invalid.. it doesn't damn well exist!!

Ah yes well the government were never punctual really..

I think postcodes would be extremely handy if I'm honest.

It's the Belfast city centre Postoffice.

Anyway if you want a postcode try here you can then get a "postcode" that anyone can use a (compatable) GPS/Satnav to find your exact location, well within 100m unless the yanks are at war then 10m.

As for AnPost postcodes,.........


don't hold your breath!
