Homeland Guinness

Malin Head, County Donegal
It’s no surprise that the name of Guinness is attached to so many bars and pubs in its country of origin. This selection includes several examples that are homages to the celebrated range of posters illustrated for Guinness in the UK by James Gilroy. There’s a strong tradition of hand-painted publicity in Ireland and while some are more or less transcriptions of Gilroy originals at least one example, photographed in the north of Donegal, close to Malin Head, has been specially conceived for its coastal location.
