Christmas is a special time in Dublin, and An Post are an important part of this. THere is a choir comprised of An Post workers who present beautiful music every day in the GPO.

From the Examiner "The husband of a postmistress in Co Donegal last night claimed that An Post have completely ignored their calls for better security around their homes."
THis first appeared on the site on the 16th November 2008 its interesting to see how things have panned out for some of the more then wealthy residents who complained. Look at the last paragraph is the postman still driving the beamer around? "Residents of Dublin’ wealthiest enclaves report that their local postman has been delivering their mail from a BMW. The bicycle dodger has been spotted on both Ailesbury and Shrewsbury roads."
Heres an interesting archive piece from the sunday Business Post which gives a flavour of how well our Union officials are paid. "Angry officials at the Communications Workers' Union (CWU) plan to demand the return of around €50,000 from their former general secretary, Con Scanlon."
Serious loss of membership for Irish Communications Workers Union. However this has not seen a decline in members contributions, which increased to 5,185,800 Euros in 2007 from 4,700,279 Euros in 2006.
