Don’t think you can help? You’re mistaken.
Galway’s new postal code system is simple and convenient to use. It is a simple six and seven character alphanumeric numeric code based on their geographical location within the city.
Significant infrastructure, such as bridges, junctions and roundabouts have all been coded to facilitate rapid identification and to facilitate future integration into navigational devices. Industrial estates and commercial retail centres have also been assigned a unique code.
It’s a totally free service and is ready to use now.
The sequential numbers that follow NW1, NE2, SW3, SW4, EC5 & SE6 identify a specific street, road, housing estate or apartment complex within one of the zones. For example, Emmet Avenue in Mervue is located in the postal district of East-Central5 (EC5) and is denoted by the code 879 which follows EC5. Hence the full address is: Emmet Avenue, Mervue, Galway EC5 879. Alternatively, if for example, a person lived in house number 7 on this street, the address could be identified completely numerically by inserting the house number in brackets at the end of the code, i.e. EC5 879 (7).
