Newspaper and journal articles

Note added, January 8th 2008

When I recently looked at this bibliography there was about 150 pieces from 101 titles.

As of today, 8th January there are 157 different papers listed here, with 340 articles, over double the number of articles! Of these articles more than 130 have links so you can read them whenever you want.

Can I repeat my request - anyone would anyone who knows of other newspaper, magazine or journal articles releveant to the Irish in the SCW, please send me the details and I'll add them to this bibliography.
