I let you know when the list is online


Well I've done a little bit of research and have about 250 town/ cities and their matching Routing keys and counties. If you like I can send you what I have? It might save you some time.
If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

Every help is welcome. I have done now all my profiles, and I'm walking through all the Irish City profiles. I've the top 150 done.
Stil some 700 to go and with only 15 lives (Search options) a day it could take a while ;-(
I think I have now about 450 towns / cities with Routing Key

Ok, hopefully this works. Use the "EBT" tab, not the "All" one.

No problem. The "All" tab isn't complete though. I *think* this is where I got the list:

I've walked trough all the Irish City Profiles and have all the Routing codes

Here are the resutls (and more)

This is a big list with a lot of Irish City Names. I filled this with the Routing Coded I found and the City Profile number from EBT
There are a lot of double profiles, and I have some questions about some.

If you have problems to open the file, please contact me.

The file is not finished. I'm now buzzy with quiding from the Lat- and Longatude to find as much Aliasses. All the changes I see on EBT I try to put into the list

If you see some errors, please let me know, I'm only a human and can make mistakes :-)

Hi maarsy,
The routing key letters are not related to the locations, as you say.
This is due to many locations having different initials in English and Irish, e.g. Wexford (in English) and Loch Garman (in Irish).
It was a conscious effort not to favour one language over the other and so random letters were selected!

So, all the hard work is done and I found a lot of Routing Keys.

As thanks the bombarded me to Ireland City Manager :)

The advantage is that I can see every city name written in the EBT database so I could shrink the codes_ireland.txt file to only 10% of the original size.

An other advantage is that I can see all new incomming City names and new incomming Postal Codes. If I see a new Eircode than I try to pinpoint it whith the right coordinations :)

So we can say, EBT is ready for the Eircode. I don't know about the rest of Ireland because I'm still waiting for my second letter with my Eircode on is (The first one was the letter from Eircode self)

I just found out that Google Map is ready for the Eircode. I was very surprised.

I had to look up coordinates for a Galway Eircode, end Google Map gave me straight away the location :-)
I was not for sure, but by checking it on the 'Find or Check the Eircode side' it gave me the same location.

Double checking with my own address and with my own Eircode it was also bulls eye :-)

Is the Eircode here for to stay ????
