Can we get a round of applause for An Post and a certain postman named Celcus who managed to deliver this card this Nicole Lally! Her friend Amanda sent her a Christmas card with the following written on the front: 

Ya know yer wan, her mother’s Hogan from Castleblakeney, but the daughter’s an ex townie. Grew up in Athlone and moved to Ballymacward (between Ballinasloe and Galway) when she got married. Lives next door to her in-laws now, she has a rake of children and 7 dogs and 4 cats and about 30 hens + ducks and some rabbits and fish & I think she has a hamster as well.  She has a shrine to the virgin mary in the left corner of her garden.

Can you give this to her please? Thanksxxxx

The inside of the card reads “…sure aren’t An Post great”… indeed they are. Brilliant.
