Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Imagine my surprise when going through our post yesterday and I spotted that one envelope had been paid for with 4 x 13p postage stamps with Irish Setters on them. According to my google-ing they were issued in 1979 as part of a British Dog series.
If anyone would like them for their memorabilia collections then I am more than happy to post them on as we already have them as First Day Covers.

Beautiful, Elisabeth, thanks for posting! And great link, Chantal - the stamp from Ireland is beautiful!!
Wow someone thinks of you....;o)
Such beautiful stamps!
Apologies for the delay, we have been caught up in all the festive madness!
These came to me quite by chance, the person sending them had no idea that we had a Setter. Wilko, Chantal and Peter I'll send you a private message to get your postal addresses so I can send them on in the new year. Chantal - I don't want paying for them as they came to me for free and I am happy to pass them on as we already have them.
