BOOK LAUNCH
“IRISH BULLETIN, VOLUME 1”
by Brian Murphy OSB
Hosted by the ‘1916-21 Club’ at the Pearse Centre,
Ireland Institute, 27 Pearse Street, Dublin
Friday, 16th November, 8pm.

The Irish Bulletin was the official newspaper of the Irish Government during the War of Independence. Its aim was to provide those outside Ireland with the Government’s case and the facts of the war that it had to wage. This information could not otherwise be obtained because of the suppression by the British authorities of all other outlets that put the Irish Government‘s case. It was produced with minimal resources and under constant threat of suppression. It was therefore an underground publication despite being the paper of a legitimate Government.

It was unadorned with any other content except straightforward factual and irrefutable information. This is what made its reputation and because of that it became one of the most powerful weapons in the war that eventually proved successful.

It deserves an honoured place in Irish history yet it has never been republished and it is hardly referred to by our contemporary historians—and when it is—it is almost inevitably in disparaging terms.

This is the first volume of the paper reproduced as faithfully as possible to the original. Other volumes will follow.


Where: Pearse Centre, Ireland Institute, 27 Pearse Street, Dublin
When: Friday, 16th November, 8pm.
