Saoirse - Irish Freedom

Saoirse - Irish Freedom is the monthly newspaper of the Irish political party Republican Sinn Féin. The name is taken from "Irish Freedom - Saoirse", which was a Fenian paper of the early 1910s. IUPUI University Library has collaborated with the School of Liberal Arts to digitize older issues of the newspaper which were previously unavailable online.

Sovereign Nation

The Sovereign Nation is the on-line and hard copy newspaper of the 32 County Sovereignty Movement, which was founded on December 7, 1997. The founders considered themselves a "Committee" of Provisional Sinn Fein, but after being expelled from that organization they formally organized themselves as the 32 County Sovereignty Movement. Their primary focus in the late 1990s and early 2000s was "to achieve broad unity amongst the Republican family on the single issue of Irish Sovereignty." Today, the 32 County Sovereignty Movement has broadened its focus and seeks to promote "the revolutionary ideals of Republicanism" and to resist "all forms of colonialism and imperialism". See 32csm.org for more information.

The Irish People

The IRISH PEOPLE was a weekly newspaper which served as the “Voice of Irish Republicanism in America.” Published by volunteers who supported an Irish Republican political analysis, the paper provided weekly reports and analysis of events in Ireland related to the struggle against British rule. It also served as a contemporary weekly record and organizer of Irish-American political activity in the United States during a crucial epoch (1972-2004). Those who wish to study historic events in Ireland and how such events were seen and influenced by Americans will find it an indispensable resource.  In addition to issues of THE IRISH PEOPLE, the collection includes photographs, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, post cards, letters, and other materials related to the paper’s production and events associated with Irish America.
