Erin, Oh Erin - St. Patrick's Day Greeting Card
Journey back to the early 1900s with this vintage card, showcasing the timeless charm of Erin. Poetically named after Ireland, "Erin" derives from the Irish word "Éirinn," a nod to the island's Irish name, Éire.

Steeped in history, this postcard likely resonated deeply with homesick Irish immigrants, serving as a heartfelt connection to the land they left behind. See our entire St. Patrick's Day Collection!
