A POSTBOX in Cork has been put out of service for the most adorably Irish reason ever.
Locals were advised not to use the box because, unbelievably, a bird had made a nest inside.
Emma Gilleece took to Twitter to post a photo of the sign which had been pinned to the postbox in question in order for the new tenants to remain undisturbed.

The sign told passersby: "This postbox is currently out of service due to a nesting bird. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."
Funnily enough, in response to Emma's tweet, another social media user noted that the out of service postbox - complete with nesting sign - was visible on Google Maps Street View. Perhaps this isn't the first time these birds have caused the local postmen and women havoc.
It even looks like you can still see the sign on Google maps! :) pic.twitter.com/ofliJYYSUh

How typically, wonderfully Irish.
