OLD POSTCARDS OF DONEGAL (and some vintage St. Patrick's Day cards and others)
We at WeLoveDonegal love collecting old postcards of Donegal. It is fascinating to see how places change over the years and there is also that warm feeling, evoking memories of how things used to be here. Along with having a large collection of our own postcards, we also have a number of friends of the site who deal in postcards and are happy to share any Donegal ones they come across with us for you to view.
We have many visitors to our site whose grandparents and even further back, hailed from Donegal and landed in countries all over the world and we know they would like to have some idea of the Donegal their forebearers left. We hope you enjoy browsing them and will add more as we have them ready. NOTE: Obviously, given their age, many of the postcards are not in pristine condition so where damaged we have tried to fix them for your viewing as best we can. Click to enlarge any postcard.
