An Post services during Covid-19

An Post postal operatives are checking in on older and vulnerable people on their daily routes.


They have added an additional element to this initiative.

Family members of an older or vulnerable person currently cocooning will now be able to request a specific ‘An Post Check-In’ by the local Postal Operative.


Family members can register for the free ‘Request a Check-In’ service by completing the postal address and Eircode of the customer on the website at:

An Post will take it from there by assigning the request specifically to the delivery route the person lives on.


Also launching today is An Post’s Newspaper Delivery service which will provide same-day delivery to households nationwide Monday to Friday.


Customers can find out more about ordering their chosen newspaper through or by contacting their chosen national or local newspaper directly by phone. Deliveries will be made free-of-charge by An Post for older and vulnerable customers currently ‘cocooning’.
