My mother used to tell me about the ads on RTE Television, the national Irish broadcaster, which were literally photographs with a voiceover.

She says she especially remembers Cash's or Todd's of Cork and their picture which sometimes didn't extend the whole way down the screen.

So, I've been looking for some vintage Irish ads and these are the ones I found online.

Do you have any vintage Irish ads? If so, please email me at
