“The Coastguard, the late, brave Caitriona Lucas and her artwork are among a number of subjects currently being considered, as is the design approach. We expect to have definite word before year-end”.

The online petition to get Caitriona’s artwork on a stamp currently has just over 2,000 signatures.

One post on the petition reads: “These volunteers are never appreciated and I have witnessed what they do on two horrific occasions.

“This wonderful woman and her Family deserve to be recognised for her bravery”.
