Posters play an important role in documenting Irish history. Posters in Ireland were used to communicate political messages, rally public support for causes, spread awareness about social issues, advertise products, services, etc. Posters are a powerful way to capture a moment in time, that can be used to inform, educate and inspire people. They are also a great way to bring attention to a particular issue or event, and to spark conversation and debate.
Many of the posters we have available here served as a powerful form of communication for previous generations of Irish people. One of the earliest examples of Irish posters can be found in the political posters of the early 1900’s. These posters were used to promote the cause of Irish Independence and were often highly emotive, depicting powerful images of Irish people and their struggle for freedom.
From early political posters to more contemporary advertising posters, these posters capture the essence of Ireland and its people, while also serving as a way to promote important causes and events. We believe these posters continue to play an important role in the record of Irish history and culture. Many feature striking designs and powerful messages designed to capture the imagination of the Irish people. As such, they remain an integral part of Ireland's visual culture and will continue, we hope, to inspire and captivate generations to come.
