Thin Lizzy are the stars of a new set of stamps issued by An Post to commemorate the iconic rock band's 50th anniversary - but the accolade comes a year too early, according to their former manager.

Terry O'Neill told the Irish Independent he'd contacted An Post to tell them 2019 did not mark the 50th anniversary and "that would not take place until next year" but he says "they went ahead anyway".

"They could have changed the dates. It was a simple enough thing to do," Mr O'Neill said.
