The elusive cover commemorating the centenary of the Ireland Home Rule Act of 1914; granting the whole of Ireland Home Rule. The act was postponed for the duration of World War I and subsequently never enacted; vital to complete any collection of Ireland postal history. Only sixty of these covers are known to exist. The cover bears a green Irish stamp with double rimmed Belfast Royal Mail postmark. Dated 18/9/14 in combination with an Eire map stamp with Home Rule for Eire squared cachet in blue.
