15 brilliantly Irish Father's Day cards you could get for your Dad next week

No more dull cards.

WITH EXACTLY ONE week to go until Father’s Day, now is the time to start your panicked last-minute present and card purchases for next Sunday.

And the best thing is, you don’t have to get a boring, bog standard card these days – you have some serious options around Ireland:

1. Like this card from Designist for people who only refer to their dad as “da”

A dead sound card for a dead sound dad!

2. Just in case he’s into Father Ted and might like this one from karenflanart on Etsy

15. And finally, in the cheekiest card of the whole collection, this one from Designist should only be given when you know his sense of humour can handle it
