Renowned Writer and Photographer supreme, Bill Power from Mitchelstown was very impressed by Millstreet when he visited on Sunday evening, 13th April 2014 to photograph the splendid stained glass windows at St. Patrick’s Church.  It was on that very evening that Bill captured the exquisite image which now features on the €1.00 stamp which this Christmas will be one of the main stamps used by the Irish people for  posting abroad.  The image is from the beautiful stained glass window over the 10th Station of the Cross in St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet.  Canon John Fitzgerald, P.P. made very special reference in his homily at Mass tonight to the great honour it is for Millstreet Church to have such a wonderful local feature going global through An Post and the marvellous photography of Bill.   Bill is pictured here with a copy of “Down the Park” before calling to the Wallis Arms Hotel on that very evening.  Click on the image to enlarge.   (S.R.)

  1. I’m chuffed. Millstreet is a great place with wonderful history and a beautiful church. I’m just glad that I was honoured with being chosen as the photographer for the stamp. (By the way, it’s also available in the 68 cent format. I didn’t know that until yesterday evening).

    It was lovely to meet Seán that day. He is a fantastic ambassador for Millstreet and a thorough gentleman.

    One of the nice aspects of the project was that I was able to put the designers in touch with Canon Fitzgerald, who I know was more than happy for the stained glass to feature on the stamp.

    Someone reminded me today that because of this stamp, a photograph of mine will probably go through every single letterbox in Ireland over the next few weeks. So too will a little bit of Millstreet. How amazing is that!
