The Anglo-Celt is one of Irelandís oldest continuing regional newspapers. The newspaper prospered despite financially turbulent beginnings. In fact the newspaper suspended publication for six years in the 1850ís. It was not until 1865 when the OíHanlon family took control of the newspapers that its future was more assured. The paper was sold to the Celtic-Media group in 2004; however the family continues to have a strong relationship with the title with John OíHanlon as its Managing Editor, the fourth generation of OíHanlon to hold the post.
The Anglo-Celt archives are a wonderful resource for all those interested in family genealogical research with their detailed Births, Deaths (obituaries) and marriages. The provincial press was also far less censored by the British authorities than their national equivalent. As a result they give both the professional and amateur historian a unique perspective of Irelandís turbulent past as well as the local impact of major national and international events.
