Designed by artist Killian Mullarney, the stamps show a Tufted Duck, a Red Breasted Merganser, a Gadwall and a Gargany.

Lough Corrib in Co Galway and Lough Conn in Co Mayo, the Shannon lakes and the Royal and Grand Canal are common viewing places for the Tufted Duck which is migratory and also breeds here.
