Periodicals and journalism in twentieth-century Ireland

Writing Against the Grain

Edited by: Mark O'Brien, Felix M. Larkin

Periodicals have been at the core of journalistic activity since before the foundation of the state, but have remained an area long neglected within media history. This book examines the origins, contribution, and impact of the major news periodicals of 20th-century Ireland. The chapters survey the proprietors, editors, contributors, journalism, controversies, and, in most cases, the demise of the most influential news journals of the period. They also evaluate the periodicals' long-term contributions to Irish journalism, society, and culture. The publications covered include: An Claidheamh Soluis * Irish Citizen * Hot Press * The Leader * Irish Worker * Irish Bulletin * The Irish Statesman * Dublin Opinion * The Bell * The Furrow * Hibernia * Magill * Scissors & Paste * Fortnight.
