In 1997-8 Ireland issued its eighth definitive series which features paintings of indigenous birds by Irish artist Killian Mullarney. On February 2, 1999 a sheetlet of 15, 30p domestic rate stamps was issued which reprised the vertically-formatted low values of the series (11 different) plus four new designs.

The new stamps in the sheetlet are gold crest, peregrine falcon, wren, and pied wagtail. These designs would be used later as different values in booklet, coil, dual currency, or no value indicated (NVI) stamps.

The sheetlet stamps are perforated 14 1/2 x 15 as the original issue definitives, but they have phosphor frames.

On December 6, 1997 Ireland released a one pound, small format, one pane booklet of stamps (Hibernia #HB61) as part of its ongoing "native birds" eighth definitive series. The two different stamps are a 32 p peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus) and a 4 p corncrake (Crex crex).

Ireland continued its "birds" series after switching to euro currency use, and released a similar, two euro booklet (Hibernia #HB113) on September 30, 2003. The euro-denominated 48c falcon and 4c corncrake are a little browner in color than the older stamps.

The corncrake, or corn crake is also known as landrail in part of its wide range throughout Eurasia and Africa. It is a threatened species in Western Europe.

Regarding the peregrine falcon Wikipedia says, "A large crow-sized falcon, it has a blue-gray back, barred white underparts, and a black head. The peregrine is renowned for its speed, reaching 320km/h (200mph) during its characteristic hunting stoop (speed dive)...the only major ice-free landmass from which it is entirely absent is New Zealand."

On June 30, 1999 Ireland issued a booklet of four, 45 p international rate airmail stamps featuring the song thrush from its "Birds" ninth definitive series. The single pane (Hib. #HP 114) includes four attached airmail labels.

From Wikipedia, "The song thrush (Turdus philomenos) is a thrush that breeds across the West Palearctic (Europe)...Its distinctive song, which has repeated musical phrases, has frequently been referred to in poetry."
