New Issues 2017: Part Seven

A new stamp to commemorate the Women’s Rugby World Cup was issued on 13th July. The event takes place in Ireland.

The single stamp features Niamh Briggs, captain of the Irish team. I bought the mint stamps and First Day Cover at the Philatelic Bureau in Dublin yesterday. Stamps which I posted to myself should arrive in the early part of next week.

The 2017 programme published in January did not feature this stamp. It was added to the programme about a month ago.
