Ireland’s post office, An Post, has released two commemorative stamps to mark the 100 year anniversary since the start of WW1.

The 68c and €1.00 stamps, together with a limited edition First Day Cover envelope, feature recruitment posters issued by the Central Council for the Organisation of Recruiting in Ireland to encourage Irish men to join the British war effort in Europe.

The stamps were designed by renowned Irish designer, Ms Ger Garland.
