It's ok for courier companies, who might have one delivery in a certain street every few days and varying routes every day over a large area, but crap for a postman who goes the same route every day and delivers several letters to several houses in a certain street every day.
What they need, is the relative location of addresses, eg. 21 High Street is next or one down from 23 High Street. Eircode doesn't give you this. D07 R532 and D07 T466 could be two houses next to each other, but there is no way of knowing this, without typing them into a computer. To use it, the postman would have to look up each address, which is not feasible. It could have worked, if they used a logical (rather than a random) system and the house next to D07 R532 would be D07 R533. Then it could work for the postman.
