Quick overview This beautiful collection book is written by author Tom Cronin and features the most interesting and rare postcards he discovered across Ireland.
€45.00

Written and published by County Cork author Tom Cronin, this enjoyable book took a number of years to create with Tom seeking out the most interesting and rare postcards he could find across the island of Ireland.

"I have been collecting postcards now for a number of years, also I have some contacts that made their collections available to me. It was difficult to track down postcards from some counties but this challenge made it all the more enjoyable", explained Tom.

All the postcards featured in the book are original and incredibly have not been colorized or enhanced in any way, which Tom says adds to their uniqueness.

"It now seems that people no longer send postcards, technology has seen to that. It seems so sad to lose such a cheerful means of communication, this was a strong reason why I created the book along with the hope that it will give younger people an insight into the leisurely pace of life that their parents and grandparents enjoyed."
