An Post has unveiled four new stamps celebrating the most important meal of the day: breakfast! The new stamps also give a nod to the Irish reputation for a hospitality and our iconic morning meals.
Designed by Irish illustrator Ailbhe Phelan, the Irish Breakfasts stamps feature a range of Irish breakfast options, including: a colourful fresh fruit smoothie; a twist on the continental option with Irish soda bread, jam and honey; a comforting bowl of porridge with seasonal fruits; and of course, the iconic Full Irish.
Aileen Mooney of An Post Irish Stamps said the colourful and uplifting stamp illustrations will be much appreciated by stamp collectors and people involved in the food industry across the world. “With these stamps we also celebrate Ireland’s great reputation at home and abroad for offering delicious food and a warm welcome that puts a smile on everyone’s face,” said Mooney.
The stamp set comprising two National stamps (€1.25 each) for standard letters within the island of Ireland and two Worldwide stamps (€2.20 each) for standard letters travelling across the globe, are available at main Post Offices and online (with free delivery).
