Irish Regional Press 1892-2012 - (Hardcover)
about this item
From the fall of Parnell to the rise and fall of the Celtic Tiger, regional newspapers have documented the story of Ireland. In this book, historians and journalists describe the newspapers, editors and personalities that have made the local press such a vital part of social and political life throughout the island. In a highly centralized country, where Dublin is the hub of political and economic activity, these newspapers provide an alternative means through which to approach modern Irish history.
