This poster that highlights the natural beauty of the Conamara region of Ireland was created post WWII to encourage air travel to the country. In the 1960's, intercontinental air travel was growing rapidly with the newer airplanes now able to carry passengers over longer distances.

Aer Lingus, meaning "air fleet", is the flag carrier airline of Ireland and the second-largest airline in the country after Ryanair. Founded by the Irish government, it was privatized between 2006 and 2015 and it is now a wholly owned subsidiary of International Airlines Group (IAG), the parent company of British Airways and Iberia. The airline's head office is on the grounds of Dublin Airport in Cloghran, County Dublin.

Paul Henry (1876 - 1958) is one of the most well-known Irish artists. Born in Belfast, he studied painting in Paris with Whistler and returned to his homeland to paint its beautiful countryside. Most of his landscapes are of Western Ireland, where he lived later in life. His works hang in prominent collections such as Ireland's National Gallery and the Musee de Luxembourg.

Connemara is a region in Western Ireland known for its mountains and lakes. It is famous for its green marble and beautiful landscape. Today, it is home to the most native Gaelic speakers in the country.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
