 * resolution:   => duplicate


 The postcode you are looking for does not exist in the OSM database and we
 do not have external resources for Northern Ireland. As you noted,
 Nominatim cannot resolve a query with a post code when it does not know
 about the post code. That is an issue and, as it happens, it is also very
 well known.

 Please look through existing bug reports before reporting an issue. And
 especially, before reporting an issue three times.

 Closed as a duplicate of #2497, #2638 and a few others.
