Dublin International 1st Eire Postcrossing Stamp Celebration Meetup 07/10/17


Country : Ireland
City : Dublin
Date: Saturday 7th of October(All welcome)
Time: 10:00 At Eason's side door in Middle Abbey Street
where we go for coffee and sign some cards

Meeting place: Eason's shop Middle Abbey Street and then to the GPO for a reception at 11.00 AM and to buy the 1st Postcrossing Eire Stamp.

On Thursday October 5th 2017 Ireland will issue its first Postcrossing stamp - there will also be a reception in the GPO for this event - If you are attending please send me a U2U.

To celebrate the event I am organising an International meetup on Saturday
7th October starting with coffee at Eason's and then inside the GPO in O'Connell St where we can buy the new Postcrossing stamp.
The day will include visits to well known Dublin tourist spots and postcard shops and maybe even a pint of Guinness.
We will design a special postcard for the event so please indicate below if you are coming and how many postcards you will require. Postage from Ireland to any country outside of the island of Ireland is 1.35 Euro and to anyone inside Ireland North and South is 1.00 Euro.

This is an ideal opportunity to raise the profile of Postcrossing in Ireland.

The Irish National Stamp Exhibition Stampa is also on this weekend 6th October to 8th October with An Post - Dealers - Valuations - Souvenirs - Postmarks - Stamp and Postcard exhibits - Display of model postboxes.
Well worth a visit - see http://www.stampa.ie
I can organise a visit for those interested.

For Irish Postcrossers new to the forum we have regular monthly mini-meetings around Ireland - You can keep an eye here to see when our next one is

Oooo, this is very very tempting. It's a really good date for me and flights are currently £50. I'll see if the boyfriend would like a nice romantic weekend away (well, romantic until I ditch him for postcards) :D

Turns out that I probably won't be able to make it after all, so sorry I will miss the meetup ... ! :( But the others are definitely coming, at least three of them and probably four :)
