Some nice stickers from mainly Portugal and Spain that I was sent recently.

The disso IRPWA festooned the lamp posts with stickers on the route to Glasnevin cemetery there a couple of weeks back. Have to say they are a bugger to peel off.

Funny enough ,I always found the oul “sticky” easter lily much handier than fumbling with a pin!.In fact the sticky backed lily predates the 1970 split and I think all sides should adopt it.I have even seen families who would be “provo” use glue to affix easter lilies to their relatives headstones.

I remember one time in the 1980s I was outside the GPO selling them for the WP. Just to judge from chatting to people buying them there was many a person from either side of that divide who would be about to buy them in error, or just didn’t care or didn’t know about the symbolism. They just wanted the Lily and saw it in whatever form as a Republican symbol. Which indeed it is in whatever form!
