Man Alive – Ireland’s first magazine for men – 1974


Maybe Osama had issues 1 & 2 tucked away in his hideaway, but I have here issue 3 of Man Alive, the self proclaimed “Ireland’s first magazine for men”.
It was 1974 and it cost 40p. How much was 40p worth, back then? Well, in this same mag, a review of Captain Americas in Grafton St,  quoted the price of a quarter pound burger at 50p.
Here are a few more page scans from the mag.
