Arthur Griffith founded ‘Scissors and Paste’ in December 1914, after the suppression of his newspapers ‘Sinn Féin’ and Éire. Griffith, arguably the most significant political journalist in Ireland during the first two decades of the twentieth century, tried to circumvent United Kingdom government censorship at the outset of World War I. Griffith, ‘father’ or founder of Sinn Féin, edited and substantially wrote a succession of publications that frequently annoyed the authorities, which had already suppressed two of his titles. In an effort to tell stories that would otherwise be censored, Griffith’s twice weekly ‘Scissors and Paste’ published a series of articles in which he reproduced certain reports from other newspapers that were not banned, relying especially upon British titles.
