Below are links to a list of 222 left-wing newspapers and periodicals published by Irish social, political and trade union organisations It is an incomplete list, as these lists tend to be, but hopefully a useful one nonetheless. Its weakest point at the moment, I would say, is that there are very few community-based periodicals on the list: left-wing community activism is noticeable by its absence. Hopefully, that will be rectified next time around.
The list has been sorted in four ways:
The main sources for this file were John Goodwillie, ‘Lesser Marxist Movements in Ireland : A Bibliography 1934-1984′, Saothar, No. 11, 1986, p 116-123; Mike Millotte, Communism in Modern Ireland: The Pursuit of the Workers Republic Since 1916, Gill and Macmillan, Dublin, 1984; Emmet O’Connor, Reds and the Green: Ireland, Russia and the Communist Internationals, 1919-43, UCD Press, Dublin, 2004; as well as my own research over the years.
