History

An Post came into being in 1984 when, under the terms of the Postal & Telecommunications Services Act, 1983, the delivery services of the Department of Posts & Telegraphs (P&T) were divided between two new organizations: An Post and Telecom √Čireann (the latter being the telecoms operator now called Eircom).

At its inception, during the early years of the Irish Free State, the Department of Posts & Telegraphs was the country's largest department of state, and its employees (most of them postmen) constituted the largest sector of the civil service.

Today An Post remains one of the largest employers in the State, although it has undergone considerable downsizing.

In 2003, An Post rebranded its post offices network as "Post Office", with a new white and red logo, and introduced banking services in conjunction with Allied Irish Banks. This is thought to have reversed a downward trend in business. An Post, however, is still loss-making in parts.
