Due to file space constraints, I am unable, at this stage, to illustrate this page with more examples of Irish luggage labels and tickets in my collection. For the information of anybody out there who might be interested the following is a short summary of these. For collectors of Irish luggage labels I would recommend the late Trefor David's book "Luggage Labels of Ireland", which establishes the classification system for types of labels used below and is available from the Railway Print Society (Hon. Secretary: Hon. Secretary: John Young, Clarence Cottage, Whashton, Richmond, North Yorkshire, DL11 7JT, email: which has also published a valuable newsletter. The many stations from which labels in my collection come are not listed, only the types of label, following this classification.

CIE - Types IC41, IC42

CDRJC - Type IC72, Donegal Railway - Type ID12

DSER - Type ID32, DWWR - Types ID42, ID44, ID45

GNRI - Types IG11/1 to IG11/6, IG12/1, IG12/4, IG13/1 to IG13/4, IG14 to IG17

GSR - Types IG21 to IG25

GSWR - Types IG31, IG32/1, IG32/2, IG33/3, IG34/1 to IG34/5

LMSNCC - Type IL16/3, MRNCC - Type IM28

MGWR - Types IM14, IM15

As far as tickets are concerned, my Edmondsons are limited to UTA(10), NIR(3), BCDR(1), GSWR(6), GNRB(19), GNRI(2), LLSR(19), GCPBVT(1), CDRJC(20), SLNCR(13), LLSR(1), MGWR(1), DNGR(22).
