Irish Ivy Post Original Signed Fine Art by liamparkinson on Etsy

When Ireland gained her independence from Britain in the 1920’s, the new state inherited many post boxes embossed with a royal crown.  Rather than build new boxes, the Irish merely covered them up with a coat of green paint.

To this day mail boxes marked VR for Queen Victoria and ER for Edward VII can be found around the country. After the Irish gained independence from England in mail boxes were painted green over the English red.
