Father’s Day, the poor relation to the over-hyped celebration that is Mother’s Day, is this Sunday. Many people forget about it, or end up buying their long-suffering dad a box of chocolates from the corner shop the night before.
However, if you would like to get something special this year, there is still time to order from the Irish Photo Archive. We have a wide selection of images that would appeal to men of a certain vintage, and even the youthful fathers out there.
We have a gallery of All-Ireland hurling final collages, many images of vintage planes, trains and automobiles, or prints of famous musicians like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Clancy Brothers.

We even have a fair few modelling shoots, if that’s more your father’s taste.
