My parents ventured to Newmarket for the monthly Flea Market there, and returned home with this much appreciated gem of a present. The newspaper comes from anti-partitionist grouping Aiséirghe, and pushes “Vocational Democracy”. It is essentially a right-wing nationalist publication.
“Vocational democray derives from the idea of the brotherhood of man in the fatherhood of God” it notes. The paper pushes for a strong Army Policy, noting that
“Apart from those in religion, the soldier in the Aiseirghe Ireland will be the most respected citizen- and not merely during a war-time like emergency period.”
Below, I have scanned the front and backpage of the four page paper, with the paper too fragile for me to risk scanning the inside pages. The old advertisements on this pages are interesting in themselves, including ads for Peter Lalor’s Lounge on Wexford Street, Monument Creameries on Camden Street and more besides.
