11 times An Post were the heroes Ireland needed in 2016

Another successful year of delivering all sorts.

1. When they successfully delivered this to Olympic medalist Annalise Murphy… with limited details to go on

To say the least.

2. When this letter with a hand-drawn map instead of an address got delivered to Hook Lighthouse in Wexford in October

3. When a Toronto man didn’t believe his Donegal wife that An Post can deliver *anything* – so he tested them out

And they delivered.

4. They’re the undoubted kings of parcel delivery

5. This package was successfully dropped off in January

6. And look at this letter delivered in West Cork during the summer

7. It’s not just about the deliveries though – they put up signs like this all the time

8. “I left it in the window for you”

9. Basically, last names are optional

10. This sparse-looking application actually arrived to the First Dates offices

“Please pick me”

You can only imagine what the actual form looked like.

11. And finally… when the excellent Me Versus An Post blog successfully sent an addressed brick

“Left on the doorstep by the postwoman”

Excellent work.
