An Post have introduced 1916-2016, the Eighth Definitive Stamps Series based on the centenary of the Easter Rising.

An téacs i nGaeilge le teacht.

This set of stamps will commemorate a hugely significant event in the history of our country that ultimately led to the founding of the modern Irish Republic. The set of sixteen stamps will be available for one year only. The 100 self-adhesive stamps feature images including an extract from The Proclamation and the Irish Republic flag. Later in the year, an exciting range of souvenir products will also be introduced. The stamps will feature Augmented Reality, and when scanned by a Smartphone with the CEE Explorer App installed, will give internet access to gpowitnesshistory.ie and background information on the Rising.

These stamps have been grouped into four categories: Leaders and Icons; Participants; Easter Week; and The Aftermath. Although each image represents an individual subject, the themes also reflect a chronological progression from the lead-up to the Rising through to its aftermath.
