Chilean honour

Two Irishmen involved in Chile's struggle for independence were today celebrated in both countries.

Bernardo O'Higgins, regarded as the Liberator of Chile, and John (Juan) MacKenna, a Commandant General of the Chilean army, feature on stamps issued in Ireland and Chile.

Images of each by Irish artist Ger Garland mark the bicentenary of Chile's independence.
