  • Irish Postcodes
    would be the cost of keeping it to date what devices will support it and who will it benefit will it work in Northern Ireland as well as the Republic Discussion about what a PostCode would look like is pointless if you do not know what it will be expected to do and it is to assume that those who have made the effort over several years to design something in detail have taken nothing but aestethics into account but maybe aspirations and keeping people happy are all are taken into account when Governement Press Releases for the last 4 years keep rolling out an example of D04 or D02 divided into 999 areas this is very much an aspiration rather than a statement of a design based on clear requirements This article falls into the same aspirational trap no effort to consider actual requirements Reply MickRegan on October 5 2009 at 11 43 am said hi Gary Wouldn t say i m deciding what it should be other than acknowledging the fact that it looks like it s going to happen and there s bound to be some discussion about it I m leaving it to the experts to come up with the final specification but at the same time think it shouldn t pander to location ego the DUB4 type of thing but wouldn t do any harm to reflect the Irish connection The cynic in me would also say it is partly being driven by the EU not 100 sure but are we obliged to have a system by 2013 To start planning it now would be better than the road speed sign fiasco where Ireland left it until 3 weeks before the EU deadline else a fine and then rushed out and missed a good opportunity to make the roads safer I guess i could list a load of things it would be useful for but amongst the obvious it could also take into account modern geo systems which would have additional benefits for emergency service responses route planning and the like Ultimately ordinary people will be using the system so presumably part of the planning has to cater for public acceptance If nothing else discussion at least gets people used to the idea and those designing the system will be conscious of what it more likely to be widely accepted usability easy to remember etc balanced with what has longevity and makes best use of technology Reply Sin e an Fear on October 12 2009 at 5 25 am said Gary Delaney flogging his idea again Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment You may use these HTML tags and attributes a href title abbr title acronym title b blockquote cite cite code del datetime em i q cite strike strong Share this page Search for Video Choice The Emigrants Story Performed by Jack Carey Written by Paul Kealy and Ciaran

day sailing It would be most helpful to know exactly what is planned for the route as I need to organise aB B at one side or the other Any chance Reply MickRegan on September 25 2009 at 4 00 pm said Hi Brian It may be worth contacting the guys at a href http www bringbacktheswanseacorkferry com target blank http www bringbacktheswanseacorkferry com to see if they can get you a definite answer I think they plan to keep to a similar schedule as the old ferry which basically meant you sailed overnight from Swansea to Cork and docked at the Irish end about 7am a nice time to arrive and sailed during the day Cork to Swansea docking at the Welsh end early evening if I remember rightly Dependent on how far from Swansea you then had to travel would dictate whether or not to book in somewhere overnight at that end Wouldn t book the B B yet though just in case something changes and if you havn t done so it s probably worth registering your interest at a href http www fastnetline co uk target blank http www fastnetline co uk and they ll let you know when the booking system schedule is available online All the best Mick Reply Brian Sandom on September 25 2009 at 2 45 pm said Many thanks Mick Those arrangements would suit me fine I will be gojng to near Baltimore so it wouldnt be too difficult to catch the ferry back without B B I should think perhaps 2 hours drive I have registered with Fastnet so await their booking form Thanks once again I always look forward to coming to the Emerald Isle Only 4 of us next year but in the past up to 16 It has been to Galway although last year Donegal Reply MickRegan on September 25 2009 at 8 25 pm said Hi Brian Glad to hear you enjoy Coincidentally we can see Baltimore from where we live about 6 7 miles in the distance Right now a bit cloudy but sure it ll be fine for next May Oh and just for clarity if the schedule is the same it ll be morning time when you arrive at this end a good sleep on the ferry and you ll be raring to go and yep approx 2 hours Ringaskiddy to Baltimore take the coast road via Kinsale Timoleague etc and catch some nice scenery Reply Brian Sandom on September 25 2009 at 7 38 pm said Great Mick We are really looking forward to our visit It seems a long way off but I am 77 now and time moves very quickly One of my 4 is 93 next week Still loves his Stout as do we all I will most certainly
