Local Castleknock residents have come together to launch a campaign aimed at changing their postal code from a northside one, to a southside one.
Caslteknock has long fancied itself as being “just as posh as the southside” and with the recent murder of a man over a game of chess, the local residents association thought it the perfect time to launch the issue and highlight just how posh the area is.
Locals in the area want the postal code changed from Dublin 15, which they say is a “bit knackery for the area”, to the next available even numbered one, which would be 26.
They argue that having an even numbered postcode would be a better fit for the overall image of the area and help erode some of the associations they have with the northside.
Speaking about the issue one Castleknock native, Cillian ó Murchadha, who changed his name to Irish recently because he’s a knob, said:
“This is just a small step in Caslteknock’s final plan to physically move the entire area to sit just off the coast of Dun Laoghaire, where we belong. Too long have we had to suffocate on the northside, surrounded by places like Blanchardstown. It’s wrong and it needs to change.”
Cillian went on further to say that “We don’t murder each other over petty crimes, gang fueds or drugs issues, we murder each other over chess. I mean, come on, if that’s not southside enough, I don’t know what is.”
The residents association will be petitioning locals and presenting their case to government authorities in the coming weeks.
If this succeeds, experts are saying that other areas might follow suit, like Howth and Malahide. However, not all of Malahide would be eligible to apply, because parts of it are pretty fucking rough in fairness.
