2020 stamp programme

Each year An Post runs a programme of special and commemorative stamps on behalf of the Irish Government. We are now taking suggestions for the 2022 stamp programme

This year the programme includes 51 stamps covering 14 different topics. 

Due to Covid-19 the 2020 Stamp Programme is deferred for the moment. Once this situation has changed the remaining issues will be released. All date updates will be made available here once confirmed.
