NOTE: editorial prospectus of Uladh No. 1 (Nov. 1904), pp.1-3, reprinted in Faces of Ulster (1992), p.52.

NOTE: Ulster Literary Theatre: denied authority to call themselves the Ulster Branch of the Irish Literary Theatre, Bulmer Hobson and David Parkhill [pseud. Lewis Purcell] launched Uladh, announcing in the editorial their intention of writing their own plays, which would be ‘more satiric than poetic’ (Nov. 1904). The journal published plays including Joseph Campbell’s Little Cowherd of Slainge (1905). [CHECK others].
