Sri Lanka and Ireland – A Common Postal Heritage

Ireland Sri Lanka 22pjpg

As part of her design studies here in Dublin, one Sri Lankan woman, married to an Irish man, decided to explore through stamps and postal history the similarities and differences between her native and adopted countries. In the course of her work she produced a number of stamp designs which draw attention to aspects of life in the two countries and featured here, side by side, are her beautifully detailed drawings of the GPO buildings in Dublin and in Columbo, Sri Lanka. Other examples of her work will be on show in the An Post Museum in the GPO over the next couple of weeks.
