An Post launched a new Christmas campaign this year called "Send Love this Christmas" with real people who are far away from home.

An Post has a beautiful campaign this Christmas, this year’s message will be “Send Love This Christmas”. The campaign stars Irish people, who won’t be surrounded by their loved ones this year, sending a surprise and personal message. An Post has that special Christmas card or parcel in the post for them. The campaign was created by JWT Folk.

Nowhere is out of reach this Christmas and whether that special person is nearby or far away, cards, letters and parcels carry our special messages of love, care and connection to everyone.

The people featured in the heart-warming stories include Bere Island-woman, Katie O’Leary, a Senior Seaman in the Naval Service who will be working aboard the LE Samuel Beckett in the Atlantic Ocean on Christmas Day.

County Limerick woman, Alison Griffin, who lives in Ho Chi Min city in Vietnam, and takes the opportunity to send Christmas wishes to her family and friends at the family’s Seven Sisters pub in Kildimo, much to the surprise of all concerned.

Dublin based newly-weds Conor Biddle & Sean Smith, have opted for some winter sun over the festive break this year, rather than having to choose which side of the family to spend the Christmas Day with!

As An Post gears up for record levels of Christmas parcels and mail, Fiona Heffernan, Commercial Director – Mail, An Post said:

“Letters and parcels, to and from loved ones near and far, are at the very heart of Christmas in Ireland. The real customers’ stories featured in this year’s An Post ads reflect the reality of life for so many people this Christmas and our customers love them. They really bring home the power of personal messages in parcels, letters and cards as they travel across the country and around the world, reinforcing human connection and the expression of love at Christmas time.”
