Above scan is an advert which appeared in Magill, January 1981 ahead of the launch of the first issue of its sister magazine, “Status” on 19 February, 1981. Twelve months & 10 issues later, Magill published a one page notice (see scan below) stating that publishing of future Status issues had been suspended.
Marian Finucane was the original Status editor, but Pat Brennan took over the role, and she, in the Magill 2000 edition, wrote a fantastic retrospective piece on the life & struggles of Status in Ireland, 1981. I’ve also scanned in Pat’s “Publish and be Damned” article below.
