About the book
In the seven decades that have passed since the founding of the Irish Farmers Journal in 1948, Ireland has been transformed socially and economically. The story of Irish agriculture during that time both reveals and illustrates the extent of the wider changes that have taken place. This is a story that has been told edition-by-edition in the Irish Farmers Journal. More than just telling the story, however, the Journal has also contributed to that story. It has shaped the news and it has helped make that news.
From the short, eight-page monthly magazine that was produced in 1948 to modern multimedia, multiplatform offerings, the Journal has provided a distinctive voice in Irish farming and in the wider Irish media. This history book records the story of the Journal from its inception in days of rationing after World War II through to 31 December 2020, the eve of Brexit.
