Conor A. Dullaghan, Ph.D. is embarking on a project to catalog as many Irish postcards from the decade 1913-1923. This was an tumultuous time in Irish history, with key events such as the Howth gun running, Home Rule, Irish Volunteers, Easter Rising, War of Independence and last, but by no means least, Irish Civil War.
Postcards from that period offer an amazing insight in to the period, whether it be the excited faces of young Fianna Éireann lads (Nationalist boy scouts) assisting in the landing of weapons at Howth, through the scenes of destruction in Dublin post rebellion, to portraits of some key participants such as Michel Collins, Eamon de Valera, Madame Markievicz, etc.
