"This comprehensive project for the microfilming and publication of previously unavailable Irish newspapers up to 1922 will do wonders to enhance research in modern Irish history."
-- Professor James S. Donnelly, University of Wisconsin-Madison
This important collection draws together more than 45 newspapers chronicling a crucial period in Irish history from the accession of George III to the throne in 1760, to Irish independence in 1922.
Sourced from several libraries, Ireland: Politics and Society through the Press, 1760-1922 is designed to show the rise of the modern Irish state and society in all their complexity, and will be valuable to all studying and writing on politics, the arts, literature, the economy, and leisure.

Newspapers and journals have been chosen for inclusion here for their importance at different periods of history and for their appeal to a broad range of research interests. Demographers and students of urban history and social change use newspapers for evidence on the development of towns and industries and emigration abroad. Genealogists and family historians look to the press not only for advertisements of births and deaths, but also for land holdings and general social activity.
Please note that it is not always possible to assemble complete runs of a title: some titles were suppressed temporarily, issues may have been lost altogether or have not been traced at any of the source libraries.
