Building The Archive: Three More Fountain News Issues Added!

Fountain News Digital

Along with creating a relevant Newswire for the local Dublin 8 area, we want this website to become a repository of local information, so we are really glad to let you know that we have re-published three more issues of our Fountain News Digital newsletter over the past few days.

Timeline of FRG Local News Services:

1991 – Fountain Resource Group founded
Local News Services @ Fountain Resource Group
1994 – Our Fountain News newsletter kicks off in paper form
2010 – The Fountain News Digital newsletter begins life
2013 – Dublin 8 Newswire, a continuous stream of local news, is first created here on

Whilst switching over to this new website, due to the old Fountain News Digital articles being created in a different way technically, we realised that we would have to create every single article again. Up until this weekend we had managed to publish three of the nine issues onto this newswire, and now we have added a further three. Over the past few days we added Issues 1,3 and 7 – November 2010, March 2011 and December 2011 respectively. So, out of a total of nine issues, presently just three remain un-published.

A Fresh Set Of Eyes!

We picked out some articles from the newly re-published issues that remain current, and that we would like to highlight again. Most of you guys will not have ever read these articles, as they have been offline for as long as this newswire is online, so we have re-published them on the current date. The rest of the articles have been re-published on their original publishing dates.

We’ve got some very personal testaments for you…

They contain plenty more quality local history articles, plus a treasure trove of lifestyle and local news articles, as there are within the six issues that have now been re-published in total.
