Irish International Airlines

I know I’ve posted this cushion before but today it’s up in honour of London Irish Wild Geese who yesterday won promotion to National League 2.  A great day – and night – resulting in a total loss of voice!  “Irish International Airlines” shows an aeroplane in the centre with O’Connell Bridge over the River Liffey, Ross Castle Killarney, St Patrick’s Bridge Cork and O’Connell Street Limerick in the four corners.  It has a border of planes and shamrocks, a white Irish linen reverse and green buttons and dates to the 1960s after which the airline no longer existed.
