Athone and The Burren - Ireland

Europe-Ireland-Athlone  Athlone is more or less the centre of Ireland. It is well known for being a key stop on the river Shannon . The River Shannon is the longest river in Ireland 

Here is  the standard definitive stamp issue that was in use in 2007. We now use self adhesive labels which I try not to use. But not easy. As usually the only way to buy regular special stamps is from the Philatelic counter in the General Post office in Dublin. 

Europe-Ireland-The Burren   A very special place to visit if in Ireland. It is has its own unique fora and flora and has a very attractive scenic set of views . 

We don't have special local postmarks any more , so just a laser print postmark. Not very impressive, but the stamp is showing the Earth and Neptune 


  1. David, you can also buy regular stamps online, it's efficient. When I lived in Dublin my order was always delivered within 2 working days :) No need to go to the GPO.
