Funeral Procession: of the Freeman's Journal. The Nationalists of Dublin are invited to assist at the interment of the late lamented Freeman's Journal ... trains from Amiens Street to Raheny at 3.45 and 4.45.
The 'Freeman’s Journal' was the unofficial organ of the Irish Parliamentary Party. During the Parnell ‘split’, the paper supported Parnell; however, when [March 1891] the anti-Parnellites launched their daily newspaper, the 'National Press', 'The Freeman’s Journal' began to drop in terms of circulation and lose revenue, it switched sides. 'The Freeman and the National Press' merged in March 1892, with Mrs. Gray selling her interest as part of the deal. The 'baby Grey' referred to is Edmund Dwyer-Grey (1870-1845) who joined the editorial committee of the Freeman's Journal in the late 1880's [where his father and grandfather had been proprietors].
