Welcome to Brand New Retro, where we scan and publish old Irish print content previously not available online.
We have over 415 posts featuring more than 1600 images which we have scanned from various magazines.
See the content category links on the left of the screen.
Location specific scans have been pinned to our Dublin and Irish maps.
The roots of the site go back to Dundalk, 1978 when my brother Eamonn and I produced the first edition of our ‘Too Late’ fanzine. Keen to digitise and share some of these old fanzines I started Brand New Retro in April 2011. On discovering that lots of other interesting Irish content & photos from our collection of magazines and fanzines had hardly any online presence, I extended my scanning to include these.
Unless otherwise stated, all the pictures and articles have been scanned from our personal collection gathered over the years. The scans are not for any commercial purpose.
