Buy an Irish print, and this company will send a copy to your loved one for free

The concept is simple; buy a print that means something to you and a loved one and Ireland Posters will send a copy to your loved one free of charge
Covid-19 is going to make Christmas a little different this year. People may not get the opportunity to see family and friends. But our hearts are being lifted by the kindness and generosity that we keep seeing in the communities, people and businesses around us.
Today, we were buoyed by Ireland Posters ‘buy Irish’ campaign, that aims to connect loved ones with places they share a grá for. The concept is simple; buy a print that means something to you and a loved one and Ireland Posters will send a copy to your loved one free of charge — they’ll even cover the postage.
Your favourite place might be a favourite Irish holiday spot, an iconic landmark lighthouse, your home county, a favourite pub or somewhere you visited together. There is a huge selection to choose from. The ‘Villages of Dublin’ series is a lovely tribute with ‘Dalkey ‘and ‘Fairview’ being particularly beautiful prints. But our favourite has to be the ‘J.Grogan’ print (we will see you again, one day soon, old friend). Roger O’Reilly is the talented artist and illustrator behind the Ireland Posters works. Inspired by the golden age of railroad posters and all things Irish, his mission is to connect Irish people everywhere back to where they come from, where they have been, or where they feel they belong.
Roger O’Reilly said “Part of the inspiration of my work is to reconnect people with their idea of ‘home’ and for them to share the love of a place with their friends or loved ones. This will be especially important this Christmas and we wanted to make it easier for people to buy Irish and support Irish art and Irish businesses this year. Our easy to navigate website and ‘buy one, gift one’ offer will make this year’s Christmas shopping affordable, easy and most importantly safe.”
Ireland Posters are available online, and prints cost between €30-€40. The ‘One for me, and one for someone I may not see’ offer covers postage to anywhere in the world, making it easier than ever to connect, and share the beauty of Ireland with loved ones at home or overseas that we may not get to see this Christmas.
