Why does Minister Denis Naughten TD support Eircode?

Minister Denis Naughten is only in office one month & eleven days but the senior DCENR staffers appear to have convinced him that useless random Eircode is a great idea. This is despite the fact that after a spend of at least €38 million (€20 million over budget) a recent poll showed approximately 80% of people either don’t

Why Google CANNOT legally use Eircode

Why No Google Support for Eircode? It is almost 17 months since those behind Eircode claimed impending Google Maps support for the postcode in an Oireachtas hearing. Former Minister Alex White again claimed Google support “within weeks” in January 2016 but it has never happened. Why have Google & SatNav manufacturers not supported Eircode? Aside

Will DOB’s Lucy Gaffney get to head RTE thanks to Eircode?

Folks we couldn’t figure out why Independent Newspapers, Newstalk & Today FM were giving Minister Alex White TD such an easy ride on the Eircode fiasco. We thought that perhaps it was just too technical for their journalists & presenters to understand. Then we found out that word had come from on high to hacks in the Indo that they

Sean O’Rourke doesn’t know what a Tracker Mortgage is…

RTE’s Sean O’Rourke showed this morning that while he may have a political questioning edge he definitely doesn’t have an edge when it comes to probing anything remotely technical.  Minister Alex White TD knows this and was allowed waffle his usual red herring of “we can’t have a sequenced post code”. In fairness he got

What did Labour deliver with Eircode ?

What we have got is an very conspicuous Labour Party collaboration, apparently aimed at denying Ireland and its people access to a useful postcode in order to ensure the competitive benefit of An Post and the employment benefits of the CWU and its members. Minister Pat Rabbitte agreed a major departure from the terms of

Eircode – Cheerleader’s favours are repaid!!!

Almost 3 months after launch and Eircode is not being used by An Post, not being used by Google, not being used by satnavs, not being used by the general public and not even being used by cheerleaders such as Nightline couriers. We always found it unusual that a successful entrepreneur would support a Labour minister but

Now that Eircode is a flop, Ireland needs to consider the proven alternative Loc8code

One week on from the debacle of the Eircode launch and the continuing negative reaction on twitter proves that Eircode is not a code for the people. Eircode exists as a property registration number to bill, fine or tax the people so it is not a code that people will get to know & use in their day to day life.
