The images on these postcards are part of a long history:

Since the 19th century, Irish postcards have carried representations of Irish social life and symbols of national identity, and this process increased with the rise of national feeling in the early 20th century. Symbols of identity have frequently been musical. (Nicholas Carolan, 1 October 2008)
