Until 23 August 2009. With the nostalgiac title of 'Come Back to Erin', this exhibition features a selection of colourful tourism posters from 1908 up to the 1970s. Produced during a period when mass tourism began to take off, the posters represent a pictorial foray into the marketing of Ireland abroad. Some of the posters became best sellers in the 1920s, particularly the images created by artist Paul Henry, known for his picturesque views of Irish skies and mountains. They quickly became iconic images of Ireland and were used to great effect in America. Originally developed and exhibited by the National Museum of Ireland
