Stampa is the annual national stamp exhibition. It's now in its 40th year and takes places this coming weekend from 21st - 23rd October in the RDS in Ballsbridge. It's in the Serpentine Hall. For Irish stamp collectors, this is the highlight of the year. Along with exhibitions, collectors can get valuations, trade and buy stamps and avail of special covers printed for Stampa. They also have competitions to win various collectable stamps and first day covers. Surely a must for Dublin philatelists.
