Does anyone know what areas the various (unused) postal codes in Cork refer to? I've seen the number '1' on signs around the city centre e.g. MacCurtain St. and the number '4' in Wilton IIRC, but never seen anything higher than that, and have never seen the numbers '2' or '3' anywhere about.
I don't think that has anything to do with postal codes. I think that's some sort of traffic direction thing.
I got a insurance cert the other day and it was like bla bla quote based on post code address in cork CX 21332 or something like that...
Douglas is in "Cork 2" It's on my TV Licence.
I think they are postal districts alright, they were never really brought into use though. I'd guess that 3 is on the northside.
its Fairhill i think
3 is on the north of the river (it's always on the letters that the TV boys send out every so often) and 4 is the student end of town. There's a thread about this somewhere else here.
Douglas is in Cork 2 and Bishopstown is in Cork 4. The best place to ask would be at the Post Office. I did ask our postie once what our exact address should be, but the answer started with a "Yerra.." so I didn't listen to the rest of it.
Maybe a minister introduced the codes but unions didn't support them?????
thats a very imaginative postal code
well having a code similar to Cork 2v3tg5-7h-2 which would identify the location down to the nearest square inch might be more imaginative but seeing as no-one uses them it would be a waste.... we don't need codes ;-) - sure can't everyone give directions !!! - we're in our house 8 years and when people get stuck we still describe them as "the new houses on the left after the...."
That's acceptable, "new" is a relative term.
For example, If you lived in a terrace of 1900 redbrick houses, and there was a row of 1970's semi-d's they would be "new"
1 North East & City Cente
2 South East (east of the South City Link Road)
3 North West
4 South West
lol.....they're postal codes alright , but in typical cork fashion no-one pays any attention to em.......
what do we cork people put on forms when we are asked for a zip code..............have we got 1???
'00000' if it's American zip codes and 'CK1 XXX' if its British postal codes.
