Call Number: PN5144.C43

In Ireland, before the advent of television in the 1950s, the newsreels were the only visual news medium available to all sections of the Irish public. They provided important records of what audiences were shown about 20th-century historical events, figures, and politics. Richly illustrated, Ireland in the Newsreels is a vital new lens through which to look at contemporary Irish history and society.
