A sweeping and detailed view of Irish history, culture and daily life
Filling a long-standing gap faced by students and scholars, Irish Historical Newspapers is a unique resource for studying the entire island of Ireland, North and South. This new collection offers an expertly selected combination of 15 national and regional titles published between 1738 and 2004. Together these newspapers deliver not only detailed coverage of local culture, society and daily life in counties across the island, but also extensive reporting on national and international events that affected both the British Empire and the United States of America.
Ireland’s foremost historical newspapers
Many of the titles found in Irish Historical Newspapers are extremely long runs—for example, the Freeman’s Journal (a major national daily) runs from 1763 to 1924, and The Belfast Newsletter (another major national daily) covers the years 1738 to 1890. Regional titles come from Cork, Dublin, Kerry, Kilkenny, Offaly, Mayo, Roscommon, and Tipperary. Among them are The Nation (1842-1897), which offers detailed coverage of the Great Irish Famine, and the Skiberreen Eagle (1882-1922), which features first-hand reporting on the 1916 Rising.
Essential for teaching and research on Colonial, European and Global Studies
This fully searchable collection includes the complete page of each issue, including eyewitness reporting, editorials, legislative information, letters, poetry, advertisements, obituaries and other news items. Irish Historical Newspapers opens up a new world of opportunity for North American-based scholars and students in fields such as Colonial, European and Global Studies; political science, economic history, military studies and much more. It also contains valuable source materials for scholars writing about the development of the U.S. and British Empire in the 19th and 20th centuries.
