The famous Irish greeting ‘Céad Míle Fáilte’ (or ‘A Hundred Thousand Welcomes’) is literally brought to life with 100,000 stamps.

Our design uses a tweaked version of the Feirste* typeface, which is a modern interpretation of old Gaelic lettering – and the concentric lines are inspired by Irish Megalithic art, such as the engravings at Newgrange.
