An Post plays a central role in Irish life and society, offering a wide range of services from the provision of pensions to parcel collection.
It wasn’t until the 16th century that an organised postal system emerged In Ireland, with regular posts set up from Dublin to a few major towns in Ireland.
Originally letters were delivered by ‘post boys’. In the early days, before there were post boxes on the street, Bellmen would walk the streets of Dublin ringing a bell to attract attention and collect letters from people.
Mail coaches began to operate in 1789 with the first one running between Dublin and Cork, speeding up mail delivery, while the introduction of the world’s first adhesive postage stamp The Penny Black made the postal service affordable to all.
