In honor of their 150 anniversary The Irish Times has made available on their website digital versions of certain past editions. Sharon and I spent some time Saturday reading a personal account of the 1916 Easter Rising and it’s fascinating. Sharon walks to work through many of the neighborhoods mentioned in the article, and it’s thrilling to recognize the streets and areas. Also in the archive are articles on the assassination of President Lincoln (page three news in Ireland), the 1906 San Francisco earthquake (page 9) and the first Transatlantic flight (which landed in County Galway near Clifden–we visited the monument to the landing when we were there last year).
