These four stamps were commissioned by An Post to honour the centenary of Andrew Carnegie. Andrew Carnegie emigrated to the United States from Drumferline in Scotland aged 12, starting as a telegraph boy he became one of the wealthiest people in history. Before his death in 1919 he gave away 90% of his fortune, €350 million, € 5.2 trillion in todays terms, a large proportion of it to education and libraries. Between 1897 and 1910 he funded the building 66 libraries in Ireland, 62 are extant. The stamps were issued in Aug 2019 and feature the libraries in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow, Cabinteely, Co. Dublin, Athea, Co Limerick and Kilkenny city. I am delighted to have my drawings representing Ireland as they fly around the world.
