An Post Issue Four New Stamps Celebrating Ireland’s Waterways

An Post today issued four new stamps showcasing the beauty of Ireland's inland waterways. The stamps, all denominated at 75c, feature four scenes: a lock keepers cottage on the Grand Canal at Cornalour, County Offaly; the Barrow Navigation at Graignamanagh, County Kilkenny; the river Shannon at Meelick Pier, County Galway and the Belturbet Marina on the River Erne in County Cavan.

Ireland's inland waterways comprise an extensive and interconnected network of rivers, lakes and canals. Originally conceived as part of Ireland's first modern transport network, they now furnish delightful views into the rarely-seen and under-appreciated Irish countryside.
