Random Fact: International Mail

International Postal Fact : Ireland does not have postal codes (with the exception of Dublin). To send an item to Ireland one simply completes the address - street name, area or town, County name (i.e. Limerick) and that's sufficient.
If it's a rural area, there may not be a street or road name, possibly just the family name and a townland.
That would also be okay.

That's an interesting tidbit. It's amazing the variety of postal information we people of the globe have. I recently send a package to Indonesia. I was given quite a lengthy address...its components far out numbered the blanks on the customs form. Thanks for the Ireland info...may come in handy one day.
