British Censorship- 1957
A bit of British censorship; a page from the Belfast Gazette announcing, among other things, the banning of several republican papers and a book, "The Omagh Prisoner" by an ex-pow. http://www.belfast-gazette.co.uk/issues/1854/pages/2/page.pdf The United Irishman's status as a paper is well known. Gair Uladh was the paper of Fianna Uladh, banned around the same period, in which the attack on Rosslea was claimed. Resurgent Ulster was part of the Republican Publicity Bureau; unfortunately little or nothing is in public domain of these latter two. Would be interested to know if there are still copies of these or the book left around.
