The Gaelic American was a weekly newspaper published in New York City by The Gaelic American Publishing Company from 1903 to 1951. According to its masthead it was a "journal devoted to the cause of Irish independence, Irish literature, and the interests of the Irish race." Irish nationalist leader John Devoy founded the paper in 1903 and was the editor until his death in 1928. Under Devoy's editorship, the paper staunchily supported the militant views of the Clan-na-Gael. The Gaelic American frequently featured articles about the Irish-American Athletic Club and advertisements for events held at Celtic Park in Long Island City, Queens. Below are a sampling of advertisements from the microfilm collection of the New York Public Library.
Note: The quality of these ads varies, as they have been reproduced from copies of 50 year old microfilm. One of the goals of the Winged Fist Organization is to digitize The Gaelic American and make this publication available to public online.
