    Extending the Dublin system county by county... Likely some categorisation system that one specific courier uses.

    I have ammened it back to R95 xxxxx, but I am guessing it's some sort of default for non recognition of Irish postcodes?

    Or some pre-EirCode system that they created.

    They actually look like UK postcode areas (and some of them are, the IV ones at the end). So, maybe they come from the UK post office. Given that the Royal Mail designed the original Dublin postcodes, maybe they extended the system to cover the republic as well, for their own internal use. Considering that all northern postcodes are BT (for Belfast) it might make sense to them that southern ones would use the D prefix (which isn't allocated already). Interesting find.
