The Kerry Press Newspaper Archive 1914 -  1916

The Kerry Press was a sister paper of the Kerry Advocate and both newspaper titles were published and printed from the same printers as the Kerry Star, Kerry News and the Kerry People. A bill that was presented before the government for the establishment of the Kerry Press and Kerry Advocates has the signature of Mr Maurice P Ryle who was the founder and editor of the Kerry News, Kerry Star and The Kerry People so we believe Mr Maurice P Ryle to have been heavily involved in both the Kerry Press and Kerry Advocate. An extract from the bill states:
