The Collectors Club
In most schools there are pupils who have little or no
interest in sport..
To cater for these boys, there is a Collectors Club in the school run by
Mr. O Neachtain. The club is made up of two groups namely the
The Seasiders Stamp Club
Seasiders Callcard Club".
The groups meet on a monthly basis after school on the school premises to swap
stamps/callcards and discuss current issues and work on projects. The "Seasiders
Stamp Club" was formed twelve years ago and caters for boys from third class up to
sixth class. Most of the members are in the Voyager Club run for junior philatelists by an
Post. This unit was set up by An Post to encourage young people to take up this
fascinating and enjoyable hobby. The following notes are used by kind permission from An
Post as found in their booklet "Irish Stamps".
