Mr.Parnell’s Rottweiler: Censorship and the United Ireland Newspaper 1881-1891


Myles Dungan

A forceful analysis of the contest between Irish nationalist newspapers and the British government during the riotous decade of the 1880s – ¬†focusing in particular on the Parnellite newspaper United Ireland. Dungan¬†examines how the British government made extensive use of censorship to combat that newspaper’s campaign and he draws on fascinating archival records which suggest that United Ireland itself may have engaged in similar censorial practices against rival organs which espoused views at variance to its own.
