Old Ireland in Colour celebrates the rich history of Ireland and the Irish through a color restoration of stunning images of all walks of Irish life, and the Irish abroad, throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.  

With over 170 photographs from all four provinces meticulously colorized by John Breslin through a combination of cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology and his own historical research, each image has been exquisitely transformed and brought to life.  Each breathtaking picture has been captioned by historian, Sarah-Ann-Buckley, and revitalizes scenes we thought we knew.

Since the project began, it has gone viral on social media-gaining more than 45,000 followers on Facebook and 55,000 followers on Instagram.

If you are looking for the perfect Irish gift, then look no further.  You can purchase it on Amazon for about $25.  I guarantee it will bring you a lot of visual joy and make someone in your life very happy.
