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 two weeks ago Minister White returned the favour to John Touhy by opening Nightline’s new parcel sorting depot dedicated to their Parcel Motel service. You might recall that John Touhy was the man who was afforded quick & unimpeded access by Alex White & the DCENR to the Oireachtas Committee on Transport & Communications right after the Freight Transport Association of Ireland dropped the the bombshell that they considered Eircode to be USELESS. So John Touhy, who was the sole representative of the courier industry in ireland that was in favour of Eircode, has opened a new parcel distribution depot dedicated to NOT delivering to Eircodes but to roadside garages.
Like we said Minister White returned the cheerleading favour to John Touhy by opening Nightline’s new “not for delivering to Eircodes” depot.
It is sooooo easy to be in favour of Eircode when you don’t and won’t use them.
Have a read of their press release below, see if you can spot if Eircode gets mentioned even once (it wasn’t at the time of typing this post).
