Footnotes

  • Published in Dublin by James C Percy. Edited by Richard J. Mecredy, the highly-respected "grand-father" of Irish motoring and also the Irish cycling champion for more than 20 years. Mecredy is most famous for his organisational support of the Gordon Bennett race in Ireland. He was one of the first car owners in Ireland and a founder member of the Irish Roads Improvement Association which fought for new highway building and surface improvement.

    The title changed to "The Motor News" in the September Issue of Volume 1. Volume 2 has three issues dated August 1901, numbers 8, 9 and 10 and then returns to monthly issues for the remainder of the Volume. A fascinating publication filled with accurate comment and well-illustrated for the time.
