Researching the Northern DStandard Newspaper could not be easier. The Monaghan County Library in Clones has most Northern Standard issues on micro-film. An excellent new micro-film viewer makes researching Co. Monaghan News items a doddle.
Some notable worthwhile research items are :-
1. The 1920s Troubles and the various attacks on Protestant Farmers in North Monaghan. Accounts of all the atrocities of that period with names are there.
2. The period following Henry Francis Lyte's residence at Silverstream, Tyholland (1835 on).
3. The Monaghan Militia History and its disbandment.
4. The famous Monaghan families who contributed so much to the area.
Just specify the year and relax with a great read.
