On the Ireland overprints of 1922 is the wording Rialtas Sealadach or Rialtar Sealadac? The reason for asking I have seen people word it Rialtar and I have seen it as Rialtas and Sealadac or Sealadach which is correct? I am doing my own stamp pages for Ireland overprints and need this help because I have worded it Rialtar as I took the s as a r please help?

Hi,

The first two words are read as Rialtas Sealadach

The last letter of the first word is the traditonal Irish form of the lower-case "s".

The last letter of the second word has a dot over the "c" to show a "ch" sound.

Here's another useful Wikipedia page showing the Irish alphabet:
