Yes, An Post has released a stamp set commemorating four classic video game properties. From their official press release:

The four constitute probably the most iconic images of popular culture since the 1970s and lie at the heart of a multibillion dollar global industry. Mario was created by Nintendo in 1981 and wears his distinctive red cap and blue overalls, beginning one of the biggest video game franchises of all time... 
Sonic the Hedgehog first appeared in 1991 and has been blazing a trail for SEGA ever since... 
PAC-MAN first appeared in 1980 and saw players steering a yellow dot around levels of maze, eating Pac-Dots and fruit, and avoiding ghosts.. 
...in 1978 Space Invaders was born, originally manufactured and sold by Taito of Japan and one of the forerunners of modern video gaming.

An Post, I'm on my way!
