If you have parcels and card to send to loved ones this Christman the advice is to get there pronto!

The number of items that goes through the GPO in Dublin more than doubles at Christmas time, going from 2 million, to 5 million items.

Anna Mc Hugh from An Post says time is running out to send cards and parcels - if you're sending anything to the UK and Europe, you really need to get moving Monday, Tuesday.

"It is very important for your cards and parcels and similarly then for the island of Ireland you have until Wednesday and Thursday or so but best not to leave it till the last minute."
