Thanks for broadcasting encouragement Greg,

A good thread title, interesting material, varied contributors,

You may come and relieve your thirst for knowledge, one sip at a time.

Greg,

I'm glad you enjoyed the thread! Ireland doesn't get much attention but it is an interesting area to explore. There is a lot of complexity in the early issues not covered in this thread.

I didn't know how this thread would be received but it worked out well. It was fun to put together and I'm pleased that other, more knowledgeable collectors have contributed.

Let's see your stuff!

Dan

Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example.
I collect for enjoyment, not investment.

@Rod thanks for linking the Triangle Cancels article. At Great American Stamp Show I picked up this cover showing the "Sword of Light" definitive with triangle cancel ANU for An Uaimh (Navan, Co. Meath) paying the printed matter rate to the US, then forwarded to a different seminary location with a Fourth Bureau 1 1/2c definitive paying the printed matter rate within the US. Both cancels are mute, of course, so we cannot date the cover except roughly based on the issue dates of the stamps.

For me, it's a triple win: my first Irish triangle cancel on cover; my first example of ANU; and a nice solo Fourth Bureau use. Now I have a problem, do I display it with my triangle cancel collection, or with my Fourth Bureau solo uses collection.

Suggestion:
Both Christopher,
the less preferred, use a printed scanned image.
Based on the ideology that new information is shown by both.

It looks like St. Columban's Seminary is still active in Nebraska and they may very well have information on Reverand Edward O'Doherty. They migrated the organization from Ireland in 1918 so early 20s to early 30s would make perfect sense.
