Written answers (Question to Communications)

The Special and Commemorative Stamp Programme for 2014, initially approved by Government on 18 December 2012, did not include a stamp to commemorate the bicentenary of the birth of Thomas Davis.

Nevertheless, I am pleased to advise that following reconsideration of the strong case made by the Thomas Davis Commemoration Society Mallow, An Post’s Philatelic Advisory Committee has now recommended, subject to Government approval, the inclusion of a stamp to commemorate the bicentenary of the birth of Thomas Davis.
