The post is delivered Monday to Friday. An Post has even won a gold award for the careful and on-time delivery of mail to other countries.
If a parcel is being delivered to your door but you’re not there, a leaflet is put through your letterbox, telling you that a parcel is waiting for you and you must go and collect it at your local delivery office. This is a “Sorry we missed you” notice.
There is also a Mailminder service available which people can use when they go on holiday. An Post keeps all their mail safe and sound at the local delivery office, ready for collection when they get home.
