The Irish Post Box - Silent Servant and Symbol of the State




Previous | Back | Next 

This book by Stephen Ferguson, tells the story of how a cast-iron box grew to become such a vital part of Post Office infrastructure and a symbol of the State itself.


The post box, in its green livery, is a familiar and comforting sight at street corner and cross roads throughout the country. Since its introduction to Ireland by the novelist Anthony Trollope over one hundred and fifty years ago it has continued, quietly and efficiently, to do its job through good times and bad, through turmoil and tranquillity. At this stage, it deserves a little recognition and in The Irish Post Box - Silent servant and symbol of the State Stephen Ferguson, Assistant Secretary of An Post, tells the story of how a cast-iron box grew to become such a vital part of Post Office infrastructure and a symbol of the State itself.
