Ireland has released a stamp on 26th February 2015 to celebrate St Patrick’s Day. This is a day that is celebrated all over the world with particularly big parades in the United States, Britain, Canada, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand. This year’s stamp, designed by Steve Simpson, is an illustration of St. Patrick in the style of the first definitive series of postage stamps which were issued by the newly formed Free State in 1922.
