The Irish postal system has long been known for its ability to successfully deliver letters despite incomplete addresses, but the letter delivered to a young woman in Dingle, County Kerry might top them all.

Andy Langlois was trying to make contact with Anne Long, an acquaintance of his in Dingle, but he was unsure of the address and name.

Well done An Post...well done.

Imagine his sheer delight when Anne received the letter and wrote back informing him.

The United States Postal Service boasts that "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed round."
