New issues purchased on recent trips to Dublin.
A single stamp (international rate) to commemorate the Centenary of the Battle of th Somme.
Recent increases in cost of sending mail necessitated new booklets for national and international postage. Two new booklets and one new coil strip were issued. Each booklet contains ten stamps in two designs from the Easter Rising “definitive series”. These stamps are available in pairs at the Philatelic Services counter at the General Post Office.
The coil features two different designs …again available as a pair at the GPO.
Four stamps (two at national rate and two at international rate) to commemorate the “Wild Atlantic Way”, Ireland’s scenic west coast.
And four stamps (two at national rate and two at international rate) depicting Irish Shop Fronts. I am disappointed in this set. They seem too small to really show the subject to best advantage.
