Woman’s Choice, July 1970 – Edna O’Brien on Cover

edna-obrien-cover-woman's-choice-1970Another Irish weekly from the late 60’s/70’s was Woman’s Choice. We’ve posted a few adverts from it in recent months but this is the first time we’ve published a cover and content. Published from Dublin, its layout, style and content (fashion, photo story, fiction, agony aunt etc) was very similar to that of other main Irish weekly Woman’s Way. RTE’s Mick Murphy wrote a weekly column for it for a while.

Here are some selected page scans from the 7th July 1970 issue.
