I don't know where you live, but if you are anywhere near Cork, the British Legion sell poppies around Poppy Day on the street just off the Grand Parade (heading back towards the Quays).
I am sure that they are sold in Dublin as well. If you live near Tipperary, you can contact me by PM, and I will assist you in giving you the name of the person who tends to the British War Memorial in Cahir every Sunday. I imagine as he puts a Poppy Wreath on the Memorial every year, that he too could assist you in buying a poppy.
I knew I was taking a risk; however, my question is sincere: where can I buy a poppy for remembrance day 2007? I reside in the south Dublin area and I have rarely seen them on sale, apart from a source in Glenageary who is no longer in a position to oblige me.
Theres no problem in Dublin, sold regularly on Grafton street (by myself) on the run up to Armistice Day, outside Easons (O;Connell St) by veterans, and several shopping centres. Generally near Nolans (clontarf), superquin sutton, frascati centre blackrock and others i presume.
No probs wearing them in Ireland ever, i never so far have had a bad word said to me, a few well dones tho.
I you want one PM me, or call into the one of the Legion offices or social clubs around Dublin, Cork, Limerick, and Cahir.
