Online Auction Description
Great Britain 1902-11 Issue, Scott's cat # 131. This 2½p ultramarine used stamp depicts King Edward VII. This stamp has good margins and perforations are clear of the design and is free of any defects. It has a cancel that is from Drogheda, County Louth, Ireland.
Drogheda, County Louth, Ireland, United Kingdom is the last bridging point on the River Boyne before it enters the Irish Sea.
The town is situated in an area with an abundance of archaeological monuments dating from the Neolithic period onwards, of which the large Passage Tombs of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth are probably the best known. The remarkable density of archaeological sites of the prehistoric and Early Christian periods uncovered in recent years in the course of development, notably during construction of the Northern Motorway: Gormanston to Monasterboice, or 'Drogheda Bypass', have shown that the hinterland of Drogheda has been a settled landscape for millennia.
