Changes to eircom.net email service - POSTPONED

Eircom.net email service – 29 March 2020

eir had planned to introduce a €5.99 per month charge for its eircom.net email service from the end of March 2020. In view of the current Covid-19 outbreak, eir has put that decision on hold – see statement below from their website.

eir has taken the decision to put the subscription charge for the eircom.net email service on hold for the foreseeable future. This means there will be no changes to how eircom.net email customers access their emails – our priority during these challenging times is the maintenance of essential communication services for all eir customers.

COVID-19

As we now know, Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a serious illness and we, because of our age profile, may be at greater risk than others if we catch it.  For many of us, we would have been the ones who volunteered in the past to help our community when needed. On this occasion, the greatest contribution we can make is to minimise social contact and avoid contracting the virus.

It is advisable to have your GPs name, phone number and address readily to hand and to keep in regular contact with family/friends. 

Information on some online cultural and religious services

If you have access to the internet, there are some services (such as orchestras) which are providing free access to their content at the moment. Some are listed on the attached. Doubtless there are many more – these are just a sample.
