A postman was left bewildered yesterday when he attempted to deliver a letter from the ESB to a graveyard in Co Clare. The ESB sent the letter to “The Occupant, The Graveyard, Tulla, Co Clare”. However, while there are hundreds of ‘occupants’ at the local cemetery, no one was available to accept the postal delivery.
This left the local postman unsure of what to do so he delivered the envelope to the local parish priest. The letter requested a legitimate name and address to whom future ESB bills should be sent.
It is believed the letter sent to the graveyard was automatically generated. There was no comment from the ESB last night.
