Irish Spotlight was produced monthly by the Irish Dominicans and covered topical issues of the day.

  1. they’re very powerful covers… unnerving with a strange unsettling urgency in the language and graphics.. ‘hanging’…’the negro’ ‘your marriage..the danger points’

  2. it wasn’t cheap…one shilling in 1969.

  3. they seem unduly interested in what the French think of us. My parents returned in ’62 or ’63 to work at the airport – so a very salient article
