We all love our Daddy, our Da, Pops or as we call him, the Auld fella! So to honour the great, silent men of Ireland we’ve designed a series of Cards that hopefully capture the Irish sense of humour and fun. Now you can pay tribute to all the wonderfully cantankerous Auld Fellas of Ireland’s with a card from our collection.
Father’s Day Cards
Father’s Day is a celebration honouring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. Many countries celebrate it on the third Sunday of June, though it is also celebrated widely on other days by many other countries. Father’s Day was inaugurated in the United States in the early 20th century to complement Mother’s Day in celebrating fathers and male parenting. In the United States, Dodd used the “Fathers’ Day” spelling on her original petition for the holiday, but the spelling “Father’s Day” was already used in 1913 when a bill was introduced to the U.S. Congress as the first attempt to establish the holiday, and it was still spelled the same way when its creator was commended in 2008 by the U.S. Congress. In Ireland, Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June and is not a public holiday.
In addition to Father’s Day, International Men’s Day is celebrated in many countries on November 19 for men and boys who are not fathers.
