It’s available online at irishstamps.ie, at the GPO Stamp Shop in the GPO and at main post offices. 82c covers worldwide airmail postage for a standard letter up to 50g.
The Gathering Ireland 2013 stamp was designed specifically for use on invitations to family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances to come to Ireland this year for celebrations which are expected to attract around 325,000 extra overseas visitors. Gatherings are being organised on a national scale, and by families, individuals and communities across the country.
One very fashionable ‘Gathering’ was on hand to help launch the stamp.
