  1. There is something in Irish stamps so attractive which is not there in others, can this attractiveness be quantified by any collectors of Irish stamps ? The 4 diamonds of Contemporary Dance are a breath of fresh air, in design and conception. Hope we have some memorabelia on the Olympics from Ireland. Cheers.
