The Glucksman Library is pleased to announce that the earliest copies of
the Limerick Chronicle, the oldest surviving newspaper in the State, are
now available to read online from the University of Limerick
Institutional Repository (ULIR). The Limerick Chronicle of 1768 was
printed and edited by John Ferrar who was a prominent bookseller and
printer in Limerick. 

The digitisation process took many months to complete and was made
possible by means of the sophisticated scanning equipment in our
Digitisation Unit. The printed version of the Chronicle is housed in our
Special Collections department.

Online accessibility to this unique digital resource has been welcomed
by scholars, researchers, academics, and those with a keen interest in
the history and heritage of 18th century Limerick.

Best wishes,

Mags O'Connor
