Parlophone Ireland is represented by the DIP series, launched in 1963, with a dozen or so releases by 1966. It was then dorment until 1970, when Thin Lizzy's famous debut single "The Farmer" was released. This is easily the most collectable single in the series, though the Alice single is almost as hard to find. The rest of the DIP series which lasted until 1973 consists of singles by The Times and solo Beatles recordings on Apple Records.
