It is a revenue stamp.

Hi Chris,

I think this is issued in 1902. If you come across any more revenues, I find I.B RedGuy's website very good. He is a seller of revenues, but has a great archive of many revenues.

The stamp was issued for use in payment of Court fees on documents. The petty sessions were lower level courts. Before the independence of Eire, the Courts were part of the UK legal system, so British stamps were used.

In my ancient copy of Barefoot & Hall (Commonwealth revenues), it is #9 under the Petty Sessions category, catalog value (then) 50 pence, perf 15½ x 15 OR perf 14. There were only 3 Edward VII stamps, so it's easy to identify. It IS 1902.

Other "Petty Sessions" revenues (including this one) overprinted "Provisional Govt. of Ireland" or "Irish Free State" are quite pricey, and undoubtedly worth even more on document.
