PICS: An Post somehow managed to deliver these letters with the vaguest of details on them

Credit where it's due...

It's fair to say, not all heroes wear capes and the unsung men and women of An Post definitely fall into this category.

The Eircode was recently introduced in a bid to make posting things easier in Ireland, but lets be realistic, who needs a fancy system like that when you've got people like this delivering your post.

While supping a few jars of wobbly water, Kevin J O'Sullivan and his friends pondered the age old question, "how little would it take to get a letter delivered?"

It turns out surprisingly little...

They decided to post a letter from Castletroy in Limerick to their friend John in Rathmore, Kerry.

One was simply titled: "John {redacted}, Rathmore." The other had a bit more detail, it read: "The little white house with the new kitchen extension, on the right, just after {redacted} N.S. (also has a boxer named Rosie), Rathmore."

They arrived without any hassle in Rathmore to a very grateful John the very next day.
