The Post Office in Ireland – An illustrated history




Previous | Back | Next 



This carefully researched and exquisitely illustrated book draws on An Post’s own and many other archive sources to present for the first time a comprehensive history of the Irish Post Office. For some 400 years, it has been intimately connected with the development of Irish society providing various communication, banking and agency services which touch the daily lives of Irish people at home and abroad.

From letters and telephones, to radio and pensions, to the GPO and 1916, no other institution has had such a profound and enduring effect on Irish life. Its influence on transport, economics, and national identity has been immense and, as it faces particularly challenging times today, it is fitting that the role of the Post Office and its contribution to national life over the generations should be recognised.

Published as a full colour hard-back by Irish Academic Press, this beautiful book presents an engaging account – authoritative yet accessible – of an institution that has won both respect and affection from the people of Ireland.
