Brian O'Higgins (Irish: 1882 –1963)

An Irish writer, poet, soldier and politician, who was also a founding member of Sinn Féin and served as President of the organisation from 1931 to 1933.

He was a leading figure within 20th century Irish republicanism and was widely regarded for his literary abilities and illustrations .

From the late 1920s, he ran a successful business publishing greeting cards, calendars and devotional materials, decorated with Celtic designs and O'Higgins' own verses.

Whilst he published several books and pamplets, these posters are more unique and rare.

Have x 4 of these origional small poster prints.

Only ever seen just one of these, tweeted by Meath Museam one St.Patricks day.

(County Meath’s Local Studies Brian O’Higgins Collection)

None of E-bay, or elsewhere.

For their age. are in pretty good condiiton for their age (only very slight/minor signs of wear), very vibrant considering the limited printing technology back then.

Size: 420 x 180mm (approx) each

No frame (had them stored in an A3 glass frame to preserve only).

When copyright has expires on these (70yrs from passing), someone could scan and re-print upscale at A1 size and sell as framed items to pubs etc. Could also be used within 'fair use' policy.

May also be of interest to any Irish Museam.
