News from Republic of Ireland.

Brian Warren has very kindly sent me the following message full of helpful and interesting information about philatelic events in The Republic of Ireland. Unfortunately it was not delivered to my correct box so I am publishing it a little longer after Brian sent it than I should have liked it to be but the news remains relevant and of great interest:-

  1. Some of the Irish news is not surprising. Self-adhesives may cost more to produce, but are more convenient for postal users. The sheets of 8 or 9 is probably to make them more convenient for post offices to store (though why not use a sheet of 10?). I wonder though if the sheets of 8 or 9 will have rouletting to allow the stamps to be sold individually, and how the catalogues will treat the small sheets of 2 or 4.
