Ireland is introducing postcodes in 2015 and an outreach programme is in place to ensure that no one is left behind. An Eircode is a smart location code for all Irish addresses. Eircode will identify an individual address – rural or urban – and help show exactly where it is located. This means every residential address and business will receive a unique Eircode. During the launch phase this summer, all residents and businesses will receive a letter notifying them of the Eircode for their address. Addresses will not be changing; an Eircode will simply be added to current addresses.
Longford Community Resources ltd is leading the drive in Longford & Westmeath working with community and voluntary organisations to reach these people and offer them basic information and reassurance on the change. Margaret Walsh is the Outreach Champion and is particularly interested in ensuring that people reach out to people they know, friends, family and neighbours, who they feel might get left behind, particularly older people living alone.
