Old Telephone Boxes Remaining in Ireland

As a regular reader will know, we at callcards.ie have a soft spot for the old style P&T Phonebox (or phonebooth, depending where you come from!). 

 

Over the past year, we've been putting together a map which identifies where these old type Phoneboxes still stand.

 

There are 2 types: concrete phone boxes and wooden phone boxes.

then blue and white in the 80's during the breaking up of P&T to Telecom Eireann and An Post (see our blog article on this)

 

The infamous Business Card Callcards

After so many years, we think we have seen everything there is to see in the world of Callcards. When we started the website in 2012, we thought that we knew almost everything there was to know about Callcards... how wrong were we! Almost every month, we come across something we have never seen before... and it continues to this day.
 
Not long after the website launched, we came across the series of Business Card Callcards. Telecom Eireann Business Card Callcards were believed to have been produced between 1996 and 1997. It's believed that there were 500 of each produced.
