Burning the diabolical 'News of the World'

In this episode we meet the Angelic Warfare Association, whose newspaper burning caused a stir in 1926 and 1927. Emulating protest burnings of previous decades, these young men targeted a British Sunday newspaper, the News of the World.


  • There were way more incidents of newspapers burnings than book bonfires.
  • The real truth about post-independence Ireland is that everyone was reading the News of the World.
  • Angelic Warfare was a boy’s sodality, so think of the Scouts, with extra praying.
