We received the following email from our Irish fellows:
STAMPA, the Irish National Stamp Exhibition, will celebrate its 50th anniversary this week, with a return to the venue at Griffith College, Dublin. This year also marks the centenary of Irish Stamps and we will be marking this with some very special exhibits in both the various competitions and displays throughout the exhibition.
Check out www.stampa.ie
This year we will be continuing FREE entry to all attendees. This will be the first exhibition following COVID and we are delighted to be back.
If you collect Irish Stamps or if you have an interest in Irish Philately, or stamps and philately in general or even stamp competitions, then this is the show for you. A major feature of STAMPA has always been the competition entries and displays. There are many classes in which exhibitors have entered whether novice or advanced – see the Awards: (http://stampa.ie/index.php/awards) and Entry Form for details: (http://stampa.ie/index.php/entry-form). For Stampa 2022 a new MODERN class will commence.
A set of philatelic souvenirs are available exclusively to STAMPA members and, in addition, there will be a public souvenir for sale at the show, with specific limited edition postmark cancellations for each day. These items are not available from An Post.
Hopefully we’ll see you from Friday until Sunday.
