12 Days of Christmas Cards

Tuesday, December 12, 2017 - 09:15

From the 13 to 24 of December we will be featuring a Christmas card each day on our social media pages from the Airfield archive, the cards will also be on display in the Library foyer from the 13 to 20 December. They form part of the Airfield archive, cared for by the OPW-Maynooth University Archive and Research Centre at Castletown House. The Christmas cards are beautiful examples of greeting cards, which date from 1860 to 1984 and sent to members of the Overend family at Airfield, Dundrum, and designed by known printers Ernest Nister, Raphael Tuck & Sons, Hildesheimer & Faulkner, W. Hegelberg Sharpe’s Classic, and Misch & Co.
