Postcards of Ireland (1890s - 1960s)

Here's another selection of vintage postcards I found, mainly on ebay, of various parts of Ireland from around the turn of 20th century up until the late 1960s. I don't have an exact year for most of them unfortunately. Some of them do a good job of selling the places they depict. Others, not so much.

 High Street, Belfast, 1908.
 Carndonagh, Co. Donegal, 1960s.
 Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim looking rivetting in the 1960s.
 Dominic Street, Mullingar in what looks like the 1950s.
 Knock, Co. Mayo, 1960s.
 Larne, Co. Antrim, looking as beautiful as ever, early 1900s.
Puck Fair, Kilorglin, Co. Kerry, 1960s.
 Queen's Bridge, Belfast, late 19th C. or early 1900s.
 St. Patrick's Bridge, Cork, late 19th C. or early 1900s.
 Ballybunion, Co. Kerry, looking like an essential place to visit, 1960s.
 Black Cave Tunnel, Co. Antrim, 1890s. Here it is in another era.
 Dublin's Four Courts, 1960s.
 Gap Of Dunloe, Co. Kerry, 1960s.
 Killybegs, Co Donegal, 1960s.
 Strawberry Beds, Co. Dublin, c.1910.
Westmoreland Street, Dublin, late 19th C. or early 1900s.
