It's the end of the world as we know it -- or at least this small, damp, teddy bear-shaped bit that we call home.

The Government is introducing nationwide postcodes by the first half of 2015, which will impact on delivery services, GPS systems, and most distressingly of all if you live in Sandymount or Rathgar, location snobbery.

Seven-digit codes for every letterbox in the land, you see, mean bye-bye to the only existing postcodes we have, in Dublin. And that means au revoir to the invaluable social cachet of living in one of the snootier ones: D4, D6, D2 (the nicer parts, anyway), D18 (ditto), D14 (ditto again, though Dundrum SC drags the coefficient up to acceptably posh levels).
