Discover Northern Ireland With Mint Souvenir Sheet
This mint-fresh, never hinged souvenir sheet honors Northern Ireland. One interesting stamp on the 2008 sheet highlights St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland. Born in England, but taken as a slave to Ireland, he escaped. Though he returned to the land of his birth, Patrick was inspired by a dream to go back to Ireland. He brought Christianity to its people and is said to have driven the snakes out of Ireland in the fifth century A.D.
This sheet is part of the Royal Mail series highlighting each of the United Kingdom’s four countries: Northern Ireland, England, Scotland, and Wales. Nice addition to your Great Britain or worldwide collection.
