    In our blog Top 5 Eircode Design Challenges published in April 2015 we gave an overview of some of the design ​implications we considered.  There were pros and cons for every option which needed to be carefully weighed before making the optimum choice.  When a decision is made, only the pros and cons of the chosen option are visible, and the pros and cons of the alternative options ​go unseen.   Criticism of design choices is perfectly valid, however there is a tendency to only point out the cons of the chosen design and the pros of the alternative option and ignore or dismiss it's associated cons.  Unfortunately we can't peek into a parallel universe and watch how those cons would have played out.

    Reg:  Oh yeah, yeah its used for that. Yeah. That's true.
