Long delays for property owners in new Eircode “is deeply affecting people across the country,” according to the Minister of communications Denis Naughten.

System €38m location code introduced in 2015 for the most part failed to capture the public’s imagination and still not used by many transport and logistics companies, according to recent surveys.

“I’m not happy with the time delays associated with the release of the new Eircode and I’m upset with the situation as I know it will profoundly affect people across the country,” said Naughten.

“I have asked my officials to work more closely with the post, mapping Ireland, post GeoDirectory and per capita, to improve and speed up the process of assigning Eircodes new properties.”

Naughten, who responding to a question from Fianna Dale file TD Robert Troy about the continued delays, said his Department was fully committed to resolving the issue.

In 2017 22,503 new addresses were assigned to Eircode. But in April, a survey by CBRE in Ireland organization and shipping industries, showed that just 19pc of operators to adapt their business processes in order to use Eircode.
