New stamps will honor Irish suffrage

General Post Office, Dublin


The Irish postal service An Phost, has released two stamps based on the theme of women’s rights to celebrate the centenary of International Women’s Day.

In conjunction with the National Women’s Council of Ireland (NWCI), An Phost designed two stamps and specially commissioned postcards to celebrate the event, which is taking place on March 8.

Renoned Irish designer Ger Garland designed the stamps, one of which is in the style of the suffrage handbills of the early 20th century. The second stamp shows the a purple presentation of the female symbol.

Anna McHugh of An Post said they are expecting a strong interest in the commemorative stamps.

"These stamps are a fitting tribute to those pioneering women of past centuries as well as those who continue that work today."
