Tipperary Fine Gael TD Noel Coonan has welcomed the launch of Eircode, the new location codes for Irish addresses.
Deputy Coonan said the postcode system will enhance our public infrastructure and each address will have an individual postcode.
“In spring 2015 every Irish address will get a unique code. This will lead to greater efficiency of service especially in rural areas in Tipperary. Eircodes will help the public, businesses and public bodies to locate every individual address in the country.
“According to the new website - Eircode.ie - around 35 per cent of addresses, mainly in rural areas, do not have a unique name or number in their address. With Eircodes, delivery of services and goods will be much easier and quicker to these addresses.
“Eircodes will link with online maps, satnavs and smartphone maps. Each Eircode has seven characters that are unique to each mailing address and I am hopeful this will lead to a more streamlined delivery of services to Tipperary doors,” said Deputy Coonan.
