Irish Philately


Irish Philately


These web pages are a work-in-progress and are intended to give collectors of Irish Philately ideas about the diversity of possible collecting subjects. Subjects are not treated in depth; this is left for the specialised collector and not for this web site.

Originally started in 1999 as a exhibit entitled "Irish Collecting" and developed by Michael Connolly, the previous webmaster, it will be expanded to include more subjects as material becomes available.

Some categories are well covered, while others are in various stagesdevelopment and others have yet to be considerd, designed or written up.

Please take pleasure in browsing through the . Perhaps a subject will strike your fancy and get you started collecting that specialty. You may even suggest a category not listed or contribute images and information for some of the subjects listed and/or not yet completed.
