Our recent visit to the North Mayo Heritage Centre

Recently we took a road trip to visit the North Mayo Heritage Centre located near the village of Crossmolina. This was on the invite of Hugh Trayer, Manager of the centre. We had loaned a piece of P&T telephone memorabilia to their current exhibit entitled "The Post Office and Rural Life" which focuses predominantly on the post office and the important role it plays in rural life in Ireland.

The Callcard that never was...


13 years after the last Callcard was produced, it is becoming harder and harder to discover new information about the world of Irish phonecards. However I was recently reminded of the Callcard which never seen the light of day. In fact, it's existence is unknown to many Callcard fans and collectors alike.


In the mid 1990's, a committee was tasked by the Irish government to run a program of events in 1997 throughout Ireland to commemorate the great Irish famine. The committee had a budget of €250,000 to organise events throughout Ireland and to conduct new research on the Irish famine which plagued the our country from 1845 to 1851.
