"Celtic Cats" - a first for Ireland

The press release goes on to say, "These purrfectly comical 55c and 78c stamps feature the artist’s interpretation of a Fat Cat, a Celtic Tigress, a couple of Cool Cats and a Kilkenny Cat, who looks suitably satisfied with life!"

The new stamps are available online from
