The name will be familiar to students of 20th century Irish history, but to refresh hazy memories, it was the official newspaper of the Gaelic League/ Conradh na Gaeilge and many famous revolutionaries, including Pádraig Pearse, contributed articles before 1916. Now, Tuairisc.ie (which rapidly seems to be becoming the most influential Irish-language website) has decided to reproduce an original page each week, transcribing from Gaelic to roman type.

Ah, the Lightsabre. A fine paper in its day. But joking aside this is a very welcome move. It's always interesting to see contemporary reporting of historical events. And the Irish language perspective has been left out of far too much Irish history writing.
