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.

Remember the Ryanair flight that landed at the wrong airport???

Well it turns out the flight was operated by an airline called Eirjet. Was this the Eircode pilot roll-out that Nightline called for?

OK you’ve heard about the Hare & Tortoise, well here’s the Stoat (Loc8code) & the Rabbit (Eircode)

So the stoat(loc8code) is fit for purpose & agile, while the rabbit (Eircode) is bloated, slow & eventually dead…enjoy!!!  

“White Lie Busting for Dummies”

Alex White and the DCENR have been lying consistently on one point in particular, the red herring and completely made up  “Sequential Postcode Problem”. Today in particular the DCENR told RTEs  Sean O’Rourke that if a “sequential” code such as Loc8 code was used, then every time a new building is built between 2 existing

Oireachtas Committee on Transport & Communications reluctantly allow Gary Delaney to appear before it…

On Tuesday last Gary Delaney the inventor of Loc8 Codes was very reluctantly invited before the Oireachtas committee on Transport & Communications. Mr. Delaney had tried to appear before the committee for over a year during which cheerleaders of the Eircode project were given unimpeded access to the committee. Other than the chairman, ZERO government TDs were in attendance

The Eircode Pimpernel Strikes!!! The below email was sent today to all members of the senate. We believe this email came the self proclaimed leader of the Eircode tender. Yes you read that correctly, someone involved with the delivery of the state-backed Eircode postcode has anonymously (based on legal advice), jumped ship and is urging senators

Watch Minister Alex White T.D. bullshit the Dail and feign concern for our emergency services use of Eircode. He couldn’t give a shit, Eircode is a billing database for Irish water.

Watch Minister White give a speech to the Dail where he pretends to give a shit about our emergency services and their integration with Eircode. The Postcode Working Group which reported in 2005 actually recommended a good postcode design but every useful feature has been stripped out of it and Eircode now exists only as

Ireland and a National Postcode – The Modern Navigation Requirement

Firstly, the modern requirement for a National postcode has changed. The postal market in Europe is liberalised so delivering mail and, in particular, parcels (which are the only real valuable element of the “mail” market left), is no longer the preserve of a single incumbent. For that reason, it is no longer justifiable for a

Capita PLC – An Apology!!!

In a previous post we rubbed our crystal ball and predicted that Capita PLC would win some Irish Water outsourcing contracts in the future.  We now wish to apologise for this prediction as it has shown to be untrue in the short term. The Eircode consortium is made up of Capita PLC, BearingPoint, Tico and
