12 Days of Christmas Cards at Maynooth University Library

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