A postman in Ireland has achieved the impossible delivering a Christmas card addressed to “Ya know yer wan” to its rightful recipient. Instead of the postal address, a detailed description of the recipient was provided instead. Instead of an actual address, scrawled on the front of the envelope was an in-depth description of the woman it was to be delivered to – including a description of her mother, collection of pets and garden decorations.
“Ya know yer wan. Her mother’s from Castleblakeney, but the daughter’s an ex-townie. Grew up in Athlone and moved to Ballymacward when she got married. Lives next door to her in-laws now. She has a rake a’ children, 7 dogs, 4 cats and about 30 hens and ducks and some rabbits and fish and I think she has a hamster as well,” the note read.
“She has a shrine to the Virgin Mary in the left corner of her garden. Can you give her this please?
Miraculously, the Galway postman recognised the woman in the description as Nicole Lally and swiftly delivered the card to her doorstep. “I was amused/mortified when the postman showed up this morning and hand-delivered this Christmas card from my friend who was delighted to have made a holy show of me!” Nicole wrote on Facebook.
“Thanks to my local postman Celcius who knew immediately who to deliver the card to when the supervisor read out the ‘address’. Absolutely made my day, An Post have been great sports to find me, cheers!”
