"left Heathrow" means it has left custody of Royal mail, but then it goes into a wait for space and sits there until space becomes available.

An post should change to road transport between uk and Ireland for the foreseeable future. It only takes a few extra hours.

My Parcel was in Dublin Parcel Hub from a Sunday and didn’t arrive until Wednesday! I had another order from UK that arrived in 4 days went to Dublin Mail Centre on a Friday and had it Monday morning!!! I think Dublin Parcel Hub are really slow, 1 package from UK took 12 days the last one took 4 to get to Dublin mail centre!! So I dunno strange

There's never any delays with small items that come with the postman. It's only larger packages that come in vans. It's probably the local delivery depots that are the issue.

I don't understand how An Post were flawless (for me at least) during the lockdown but now they're very slow.

Check your tracking codes, you may find the quicker stuff is a different prefix denoting the service they've requested. These are all Amzn packages (AY/AW):

All of mine go via Dublin 12, which is the parcel hub, so I'm not sure if you've mixed up the Dublin Mail Centre with the CourierPost lads in D12.

Two of my Amazon orders took 4 days to be delivered by An Post. It wasn't an An Post driver, it was some guy in a rented van.

Given that your items appear to been delivered from the Parcel hub that would be one of the new drivers they have taken on to do deliveries direct from there .

Getting the uniform can be slow sometimes especially if you don't fit the regular sizes

An Post gave me multiple excuses over the last week for no delivery.

1. I wasn't in to collect item (I am working at home)
2. They attempted to deliver parcel the following day but I wasn't in (again I am working from home so was home all day)
3. They only attempted one delivery and no 2 didnt actually happen
4. I need to go to Ravensdale Sorting Office to collect my own parcel
5. I cant reroute the parcel to another address.

All this against a backdrop of a track and trace thread which has not been updated since day 1.

Not a good experience with anpost again. Posted a parcel in Galway Monday to be delivered to Greystones Wicklow. I paid for Express Postage and was assured it would be the following day which I requested. The tracking number told me it was sitting in Dublin Mail Centre at 5am Tuesday morning. Excellent I thought and told my recipient it would be with them that day. No movement from the Dublin Mail centre the whole day until this morning when it was delivered. Not good enough when you pay for a premium service to having a parcel sit in a sorting office for no reason.
