Countess of Limerick starts initiative to send shamrocks by post for charity

The Countess of Limerick has started an initiative to send shamrocks directly by post. The movement involves selling boxes of shamrocks at a price of 2s. 6d. and 5s. The prices are significantly lower than the ones in England. All the proceeds from this initiative will be given to charity. The idea behind this movement is to promote the Irish tradition of sending shamrocks by post. It is expected that the demand for these boxes will increase as Saint Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. The Countess of Limerick has received tremendous support from the local community and hopes to make this initiative a success.
