U2 and The Cranberries are among the groups to feature in An Post’s new ‘Great Irish Songs’ set.
The iconic Irish songs showcased on the stamps are both a celebration of Irish identity and a connection to Irish culture. And we are just loving them.
The songs featured on the stamps are ‘With Or Without You’ by U2, ‘Danny Boy’ by Count John McCormack, ‘Dreams’ by the Cranberries and ‘On Raglan Road’ by Luke Kelly.
Speaking at the launch of the stamps in the GPO, Debbie Byrne from An Post Retail said:
“An Post acknowledges the cooperation of the many artists and their families, who we are representing on our Great Irish Songs stamps. The stamps are a celebration of creativity and of the power of song to tell important human stories, which are at once Irish and universal. We know these beautiful stamps will be popular with fans of music all over the world”.
They are available at post offices nationwide, online and at the GPO Philatelic Bureau.
The stamps are valid for both international (With or Without You and Danny Boy) and national (Dreams and On Raglan Road) postage.
