Four of Ireland’s leading railway stations stamped forever.
Eimear Breen writes:
Silent servants of the travelling public, backdrop to the lives of travellers and commuters, Ireland’s railway stations are celebrated today with the issue by An Post of a new four stamp series.
Ireland’s main stations were renamed in 1966 in honour of the 16 executed leaders of the 1916 rising.
The stamps are designed by Dublin firm WorkGroup and showcase the stunning work of multi-award winning photographer Janice O’Connell of f22 Photography. They are available from main post offices, at Dublin’s GPO and online at link below.
