Free State Post

Letter boxes in the UK (including Ireland) were green until 1874, when they were changed to red. After independence, the Irish (Free State) boxes were painted green and new boxes were cast without mention of the British monarch (Roaring Water). Royal Mail letter boxes in CNR areas have occasionally been painted in green-white-and-orange (Republican Mail | Tricoloured Post Box) as a political statement. The letter box shown above stands on the Ballymoney Road in Armoy.
