Never underestimate An Post.

It has been known to successfully deliver letters, even when the address given is as vague as…

Your One Mary, The First Turn After The Bend, Co. Cork

Now a blog called Me Versus An Post has decided to put An Post through its paces and see exactly what it can deliver.

The blog is the brainchild of David Curran and, as he has discovered, An Post will deliver pretty much anything.

They will deliver a dice with one line of the address written on each side

They will deliver letters with the address written backwards on the envelope

They will even deliver toilet rolls, God bless them

(Toilet rolls with Yeats poems written inside, no less.)

Will they deliver scraps of paper if the address is even a little bit visible? You betcha!

How about if the address on the envelope is obscured by a pop-up book mechanism? Don’t be silly, of course they’ll deliver.

Okay, but surely they won’t deliver a jigsaw, right?

The lesson here? Underestimate An Post at your peril.

Only in Ireland would this letter get delivered >

Is this the single stupidest letter ever written to a newspaper?
