• What can Eircode tell us about the Housing Market?

    Posted by Pat Donnelly | Sep 11, 2017

    Can we use the Eircode database to ​establish the increase in residential units in Ireland in 2016? While it is obvious that building a new apartment block will increase the number, it is less obvious that a change of building use from residential to commercial or from a number of flats to a single residence will decrease the overall housing stock. To arrive at our figure we calculated the increase in residential addresses at the end of 2016 compared to the end of 2015, excluding all properties marked as under construction.

  • What has Eircode ever done for us?

    Posted by Pat Donnelly | Jul 01, 2016

    The interior of MATTHIAS'S HOUSE. A darkened room with a very conspiratorial atmosphere...

    Reg: Here we are, a year after Eircode has been launched, and NOT ONE PERSON has used Eircode for ANYTHING.  It must be scrapped and replaced by a workable postcode.  We paid millions for it, I ask you, what has Eircode given to us in return?
    Stan: SUSI use it to improve the efficiency of grant claims, saving time on each application.  They used to spend ages looking up Google Maps.
    Reg:  Oh yeah, yeah its used for that. Yeah. That's true.

  • Seduced by a Spork

    Posted by Pat Donnelly | Mar 24, 2016

    Spork inventors boast how a spork is a better fork than a spoon, and a better spoon than a fork. This misses the more important point of how poorly it compares to a spoon as a spoon or a fork as a fork. There is an equivalence in our industry with the inventors of algorithm based location codes. These Spork inventors believe that as well as a general purpose location code their ​invention is perfect for all of the following uses...
