Starting a new thread to talk about Ireland. I have a handful of Irish covers and postcards in my worldwide postal history collection. I am not an expert on Ireland at all, but I am willing to share with the club what I have, and perhaps I will learn some new things about collecting Ireland postal history. I hope others will add to this thread as well.

Here is a postcard from my collection showing horses, which is my wife's hobby, we have 3 of them.

Here is one of my covers with a slogan cancel. I am sure there are plenty of other ones from Ireland.

re: Ireland Covers, Cards, and Cancels

This cover from my collection is not that special from the front, but I was surprised when I turned it over and opened it up.

It is a sales pitch for Electrolux vacuum cleaners from 1924. I have an old 70s model that I use to clean out my car, but I was surprised they were sold in Ireland way back in 1924.

I learned that New York is not the only place with a Long Island, as shown below, on another cover from my collection with Long Island local stamps on the back. I like the Long Island cancel on this one.

Very cool! I’ve never seen those Long Island Cinderellas before. Thanks for sharing!

re: Ireland Covers, Cards, and Cancels

On another recent Stamporama thread, Great Britain coil strips of Machins of varying denominations were shown. I discovered that Ireland also issued coil strips of varying denominations. I found examples in a box of stamps I have been digging through recently, and they are scanned below. These are all perf 14x15, and you can see "teeth" marks on 2 of the ends caused by a stamp dispenser of some kind, possibly a stamp vending machine. I snipped the listing from the 2019 Scott Catalogue, showing #298be, strip of 4 from 1974, is valued at $4.00 in italics. The right pair has a 2 1/2p sepia, from one of the other strips listed.

I think you’re right about those teeth marks being from a dispenser. I’ve only ever encountered them on this issue.

re: Ireland Covers, Cards, and Cancels

Several years ago developed a nice Eire collection of mint and used stamps and a few covers, but eventually sold most of it. My original intent was to get as complete and up-to-date collection as possible, but it didn’t take long to realize that buying new issues and album supplements year after year was pointless, even boring. If I never see another Irish “love” stamp again, I shall die happy. Well, not actually happy....

Nevertheless, in the pursuit of all of those stamps and covers I learned a great deal about Irish history, and at the end just couldn’t part with one particular cover, posted by an Irish school boy from his private school at Castleknock. In his letter, sent to his father, he pleads for advice about a pair of new boots that he bought in Dublin. If you’re curious, check out my web page,
