On 2 May 2019, An Post (Ireland’s leading supplier of postal services) will release a set of 4 stamps that celebrate 4 iconic and internationally recognized songs, performed by renowned Irish artists. The special collection is called “Great Irish Songs” and feature:
- Dreams – The Cranberries
- With Or Without You – U2
- On Raglan Road – Luke Kelly
- Danny Boy – John McCormack
Regarding The Cranberries, 3 versions are available: the single stamp (€1.00), a Dreams sheetlet (€16.00) and a collector pack of 4 stamp discs (€17.00), all designed by Amp Visual.
Nice that they’re putting The Cranberries on an Irish stamp, shame they got the lyrics wrong!!!
Thanks to The Cranberries Newspaper for the info!
UPDATE – 5 APRIL
UPDATE – 8 MAY
The set of stamps has been delayed (very likely due to The Cranberries lyrics error) and the new date of issue is tomorrow, 9 May 2019. For the occasion the official “The Collector” (pdf) has been updated and lyrics are now correct!
The set of stamps is valid for both international (U2 + John McCormack) and national (The Cranberries + Luke Kelly) postage, see different face values.
