Vintage St. Patrick’s Day Advertisements

I can’t believe that after all these years I haven’t ever gotten around to putting together a gallery of vintage St. Patrick’s Day advertisements. Of course the fact that I’m not Irish may have something to do with that. But then again I’m not pagan and I’ve had a few Halloween galleries. Nevertheless, the time has come to cut the blarney and get on with it. So here’s a lucky seven for St. Paddy’s Day (sorry, no Guinness). Erin go Bragh!
