PIC: An Post has taken its legendary delivering status to another level with letter to Leo Varadkar

They've done it again.


Post office west Cork closes 160 years

Ireland’s postal service is just the best.

There are umpteen examples that An Post is the best delivering service in Europe, no scrap that, in the entire World.

They have proved themselves time and time again, whether they are delivering letters with no details to James Connolly Memorial Hospital in Blanchardstown or being set a challenge to find Brid and Seamus in Mallow who received a letter from Argentina, they always deliver (honestly no pun intended).

Their latest delivery was to none other than Ireland’s newest Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar. Fair enough, Varadkar is a well-known public figure but just because he is the leader of the country, doesn’t mean he is easily found.

The Fine Gael leader took to Twitter to praise An Post who managed to get the letter to Varadkar’s post box with just four details, his name, his position, Castleknock, Dublin 15.

Varadkar said “well done to An Post for delivering this” and we would also like to applaud them on their outstanding service, they never fail to surprise us.

The Government implemented EirCode in order to make it easier for letters to find their way around this little country but even without it, they are still managing to get the job done.

While the majority of the comments under the picture were very positive toward the postal service, one Twitter user wasn’t so convinced by An Post’s terrific job.

An Post doesn’t need any more challenges to prove its worth and as Dara O’ Briain points out in this video, once you get a letter to Ireland, they will take care of it from there.
