News in Ireland 100 Year Ago

Century Ireland

What was in the news 100 years ago? The Century Ireland project is an online historical newspaper that tells the story of the events of Irish life a century ago. It's published on a fortnightly basis, beginning in May 2013, and is the main online portal for the Irish decade of commemorations, 1912-23.

Century Ireland is produced by a team of researchers at Boston College Ireland and the project is funded by the Department of the Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
