Well, Wood Quay(A and B)is the name of an electoral division that extends from the quay itself all the way to the canal, conceivably you could be in it. I've sometimes seen it in location systems, maybe that's how it got there. For example sometimes my location for the weather app in my phone is given as 'Wood Quay'.
If the actual street address is correct, the package should be arrive ok.

So basically the Eircode is only useful for An Post for their sorting, anyone else tough luck if its got the wrong county or area
And how many millions did this cost?

The whole postal system is a joke at times. I live in County Kildare yet my postal address ends in "Enfield, Co Meath" because my sorting office is in Enfield, Co Meath. It becomes very annoying when I am guiding anyone to the house and I tell them that they need to put Kildare and not Meath into the search on their Sat Nav. They then say, but your address is in Meath and I reply that yes, my postal address is in Meath but I am actually in Kildare......cue some confused faces!

Give them your Eircode instead.

Can't really get on with the whole postal address hassle, created by AnPost for their own convenience.
In normal world, anyone's own address describes exacly what it's created for - location. Route is a different story, and (in this case) is Anpost's/other courier's problem. Sadly it's Ireland, so can't be simple.
