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 to hear the genuine downsides of Eircode from one of the few people technically qualified to advise the committee on postcodes. Gary launched the very accurate and proven Loc8 codes in 2010 and has issued over 250,000 “postcodes” to date…this man needs to be heeded.
Some (government T.D.) members of the committee claim they were not notified the committee was even sitting on Tuesday.
