SÉ WALL POST BOX [I CANNOT REMEMBER SEEING AN SÉ WALL BOX BEFORE]-159076 by William Murphy
Following Irish independence in 1922, existing British pillar boxes were retained, and when the Irish Free State left the Commonwealth following the declaration of the Republic of Ireland in 1949 existing pillar and wall boxes were then painted green. Many of these are extant around the country, retaining the monogram of the monarch who reigned at the time of the box's installation. The Department of Posts and Telegraphs continued installing similar pillar boxes and wall boxes, but with the initials SÉ (for Saorstát Éireann), a harp or the P & T logo, instead of a monarch's monogram. Since 1984 An Post, the current Irish postal administration, use the An Post logo to adorn their posting boxes.

Remembering Anne Devlin✊🇮🇪 The Irish Revolutionary and one of the leaders of the 1803 Rebellion died this day in 1851. Born in 1780 in Cronebeg, a town near Aughrim, Co. Wicklow to a staunchly Republican family related to Wicklow rebels Michael Dwyer & Hugh Vesty Byrne. Her family then moved to a farm in Corballis near Rathdrum Co Wicklow, where she met Miss Leonard and decided to be her housekeeper in Inchicore in Dublin city. During the 1798 rebellion, her family home was often raided and some of her family were imprisoned, when the rebellion ended her father was imprisoned in Wicklow Gaol until 1800, when he was released the family moved to Rathfarnham in County Dublin, where they met Robert Emmet. Anne Devlin helped Emmet plan the 1803 rebellion and as cover pretended to be his housekeeper. Her main job was to organise the delivery of Robert's messages by hand all around the city. As a result, she knew the names of more than fifty insurgents spread across Dublin. With the rebellion defeated Robert Emmet's house was raided by the British Army, Anne and her eight-year-old sister were interrogated by the soldiers which included stabbing Anne Devlin with bayonets, but she refused to talk. Emmet had been in hiding in the Wicklow mountains but he wanted to move back to Dublin so Devlin helped him move to a house in Harold's Cross under an assumed name, she also passed messages to his comrades and his fiancee Sarah Curran. A Loyalist neighbour of the Devlins reported seeing Robert Emmet at their home so Devlin was arrested by Major Sirr, Dublin's Chief of Police and brought to Dublin Castle, interrogated and offered bribes to inform on Robert Emmet and his comrades, but she refused. Devlin was sent to Kilmainham Gaol where Emmet was also been held, Emmet begged her to tell the authorities what they wanted to know but again she refused despite been savagely tortured by the then governor of the Gaol, Dr Edward Trevor.
