The mystery of postal charges

I am fortunate to have customers in Northern Ireland and France. Today I sent a small packet by post to Northern Ireland, 508 miles away from me, and it cost 75p to send. I sent a similar package to France, west of Paris, 411 miles away from me and it cost £1.49. Why the difference?; we’re all in the EU now.
