Very few of these returned covers which travelled thousands of postal miles are known.
Permission for Long Island locals was given by the Department of Posts, Dublin. After a year of preparation, much delayed by difficulty in finding a perforating machine, the stamps were issued AP 24 1973. First Day Covers were prepared and serviced in Schull (and collected later in the day) and over 1,000 others letters were posted that day to collectors and stamp trade worldwide. Instead of travelling the 60 miles direct to Cork Airport these letters reached nearby Skibbereen where postal rules dictated that all mail should be cleared before employees go home. Instead of the expected 15 or so letters over 1,000 arrived and on noticing the Long Island locals on reverse Dublin was phoned who said not to accept more mail until the matter was looked into. Orders were serviced in the following weeks, but due Government reshuffles no authorisation to continue ever came and the service, although legally approved, was eventually abandoned.
