A postcard showing seaview near Maam Cross, Connemara, Co. Galway. This is located in the western side of the country. Thanks chrissybaby.

A 82 cents christmas stamp was used to send this postcard. Unfortunately, it was pen-cancelled, a nightmare to stamp collectors. You can see how rude it was being cancelled with so many blue-color ball-point pen lines.

A meter cancellation (purposely showing as it is on the postcard) was found at the bottom of this card. It was due to how this postcard was mis-put its position when it was going into the sorting machine. Therefore, meter cancellation, which is printed on 21(?).11.2009, did not cancel the stamp. It is a bit blur too.
