Eircode information campaign by Muintir

An information campaign on the new Eircode post-code system being introduced in Ireland is being undertaken at local level by Muintir na Tire, writes Brian Byrne.

The group is particularly aiming at elderly people who might need the system explained, or confusion or misunderstandings cleared up, and is inviting people with elderly family members or neighbours to contact them.

This summer a letter will be sent to all addresses in Kildare notifying them of the Eircode for that address. People simply include the Eircode at the bottom of their address in all correspondence.

Conor O'Leary says there are many benefits to using Eircode, including making it quicker and easier for medical emergency services and others to locate addresses. "It is safe to give an Eircode to anyone you would normally give your address to," he adds.
