Hi All,
Do you know your Eircode? I will admit, I don’t. An ambulance was called to a house in the parish recently. Ambulance delayed as no one knew what the Eircode is or where to find it. I would suggest we all l earn our Eircodes and put them up on a prominent place in our homes where everyone can see them. Pat.
