Exhibition of Stamps Commemorating the 1916 Easter Rising

On January 21, 2016, An Post introduced the Eighth Definitive Stamp Series, 1916 – 2o16, to commemorate the 1916 Easter Rising.

Large format prints and exclusive souvenir sheets will be displayed throughout the Centre, reflecting a chronological progression from the lead-up to the Rising through to its aftermath. It will be possible to scan the individual stamps on display with a smartphone with the free CEE App installed to access extra content and background information on the Rising.

Available from all Post Offices for one year only, these sixteen stamps have been grouped into four categories:

LEADERS AND ICONS; PARTICIPANTS; EASTER WEEK; AND THE AFTERMATH.

The Exhibition will run from 24th March to the 30th April and will take place on the first and second floors.

To compliment the Exhibition, we will also be exhibiting SIX of the old Irish flags in the steel circular rings in the Courtyard of the Powerscourt Centre.
