🇮🇪 An Post, the postal service of the Republic Of Ireland, issued a booklet containing 4 stamps and 2 miniature sheets on 15 October 2020 featuring the Irish veteran popular music U2 calling the issue ‘U2 A Celebration’. Clearly An Post is following the tired old track that Royal Mail has been following in depicting aged pop musicians on its stamps in an effort to appeal to the nostalgia market. Pleasingly however An Post has not decided to issue countless expensive additional philatelic items to drain collectors and ‘fans’ of their money. The issue was designed by Shaugn McGrath Creative and lithographed by Enschedé with additional hot foil silver and gold printing on the miniature sheet along with UV lacquer. The issue is perforated 13.5.
