People in Balbriggan in Dublin will be able to get deliveries to their door via drones within the next month.

They'll initially be flying five days a week, with a number of cafes, shops and supermarkets already signed up.

Hundreds of households in Oranmore in Galway have already been availing of the Manna Aero service by ordering the likes of groceries and even pints

Bobby Healy, CEO of Manna Drone Delivery, says coffees are their most popular order:

"We can carry just over 2 kilos and about 15,000 cubic centimetres so think a meal for two or three people in a household, takeaway food.

"If you want more than that you just order two drones and they arrive three minutes after each other.

"Very popular is, believe or not, coffee. Our number one seller is a flat white."

Customers can order from local shops and restaurants, enter their eircode, and have their delivery dropped outside within minutes.
