An Post has delivered its first ever parcel by a drone nicknamed 'Postman Padraig'.

The company says it's very early days but they're hoping the successful delivery will help services in rural areas.

The first delivery was to a customer in a lighthouse in Clare Island in county Mayo.

The journey took eleven minutes and used a standard drone with a small space to fit a package in.
