The front cover is actually the post card titled:
 
IRISH INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION, DUBLIN, 1907,
 
where the details of wording etc. can be found.

The two inside silks are actually the post cards titled:
 
SACKVILLE STREET, DUBLIN, and
 
DUBLIN EXHIBITION, 1907 (no fountain),
 
where the details of wording etc. can be found.

 

As can be seen, the back cover is completely empty.

Comments:
This triple card is of course not a postcard as such, in that it would not be posted, but retained as a souvenir.
The structure though is made up of three ordinary postcards, joined together with a fabric strip, to form a fold over "book".
At the time of writing, only two of these triple cards are known, the one above, and a second relating to the Cartwright Memorial Inaugural Exhibition Bradford 1904. It is quite possible therefore that they were not well received by the exhibition visitors, and were discontinued very early.
