The Voice of the Provinces

Christopher Doughan

Liverpool University Press

This chapter concentrates on regional newspapers in Ulster and presents an overview of the regional press in the province during the 1914-21 period. A brief history of some of the main newspapers is provided while some of the key figures involved in those titles are also considered. However, the chapter specifically focuses on four titles, the Impartial Reporter, Londonderry Sentinel, Anglo-Celt, and Donegal Democrat. These papers represented a range of political sympathies across the province. The first two were staunchly unionist organs while the latter two were nationalist organs – the Anglo-Celt supportive of constitutional nationalism whereas the Donegal Democrat adopted a more republican stance. The experiences of each of these newspapers are documented in this chapter.
