The annual trip to the Gaeltacht is long held rite of passage in Irish life, so with this series we wanted to reflect the cross generational experience through playful illustration while having the Irish language and the idea of a conversation 'as gaelige' connecting the two stamps. For many teens it marks their first trip away from home and parents so the concept reflects the experience of sending letters to and from parents and friends, a key to the Gaeltacht experience and of course to An Post.
