A complete list of issues fixed in this release can be found under www.loqate.com/support/releasenotes/2016Q2cases/ This release adds support for Eircode geocoding points provided in Loqate`s Premium Ireland data package. In 2015, Ireland introduced a new postal code system called Eircode to tackle the difficulties and inefficiencies of Ireland`s old address system. More than 35% of Irish addresses share the same address with at least one other property, making it difficult to accurately identify the actual location of an address. Eircode was designed to overcome this problem by granting a unique code to each residential and business address in Ireland. The lexicon file for Premium Ireland data is lx_IE_P.lfs. .
