Abstract:

"The Irish Press was once the biggest-selling newspaper in Ireland, read in the homes of political leaders, opinion-shapers and half of the nation. It was credited with helping to spread interest in Gaelic Games in the newly-independent Ireland and was the launchpad for numerous Irish writers, including Patrick Kavanagh, Brendan Behan, Edna O'Brien, Ben Kiely, John Banville and Neil Jordan." "Press Delete is a major work on the final years of the Irish Press. Ray Burke chronicles the declining fortunes of the paper and reports on the various gaffes that were an indicator of the overall malaise at Burgh Quay. His book contains extensive new material on the 1933 Dail debate on the Irish Press and a first lengthy interview with Dr. Eamon de Valera."--BOOK JACKET.
