    H for Galway and Monghan and Cavan. V for Kerry and Limerick. K for north county dublin. F for Donegal, etc etc.

    Load of Bull. Post codes should in part relate to names of counties and towns. You need to know from a glance, roughly where an address refers to.

        That would require intelligence. There’s some guy in the office now kicking himself that he didn’t think of that. Think of the outrageously large bonus he would of gotten on top of his already inflated bonus!! Dam!

    And Loc8 is a load of bull too by the way. A long random sequence nobody can remember and also carries no alphanumeric marker as to the location.

      I wasn’t laughing when I arrived at the door of old crabby Sammy holding a bottle of prosecco and a Barry White cassette tape let me tell you.

      Your extensive fandom will be battering down the doors of nine addresses in Dublin 8 to find you, Clampers.

        Scratch that – as far as I can tell from the search, there is only one postcode beginning with DO8 HRH. So much for privacy.

    Its not a postal code. Its simply an alpha numeric code to identify where people
    reside in order to collect revenue in the form of property tax. water tax, TV licience’s
    and so on and waste 27 odd million in the process

    1. Yea, Ok

      If it’s “to identify where people reside in order to collect revenue in the form of property tax. (sic) water tax, TV licience’s (sic) and so on” I would say it’s not at all a waste of €27million. One could say it’s money well spent, in fact.
