New Europa Stamps…

Date of Issue : 5 May 2011

Here are the new Europa stamps from Ireland, issued on 5 May 2011. The stamps feature common Europa theme of this year “ International Year of Forests”. The first stamp features a little girl sitting under the Tulip Tree, at Knockabbey Castle and Gardens, Co Louth. These gardens date back to 1730 and in just over a decade they have been wonderfully restored to their former glory. The other stamp shows a young boy crossing the River Walk on the Avondale estate in Co. Wicklow. The estate has just over 200 hectares of forest, while the house now fully restored, was once the home of Charles Stewart Parnell.
