An Post says it can cope with demand for its service with looming Christmas election
An Post says it's absolutely confident it can cope with Christmas, Water refunds, and polling cards.
The service is coming under pressure after the President signed the Water Services Bill into law last week, meaning Irish Water can start sending out refunds to up to 180,000 households.
This will be combined with the already hectic festive season and now the possibility that 3 million polling cards may have to be issued if a snap election is called on Tuesday.
However, An Post says it has a proven ability to deliver massive volumes of mail, and the company says it's absolutely confident it can deliver.
