The Irish-language daily newspaper 'Lá' was first published on 13 August 1984 to cater to the growing Irish-speaking community in west Belfast. Póilín Ní Chiaráin visits the Divis St office in this RTÉ News report broadcast on 30 August 1984. 'Lá' grew from weekly publication 'Preas an Phobail'. Editor Gearóid Ó Cairealáin says they built it up from a small thing and saw that they could produce a daily newspaper. They are now printing 600 copies a day, almost 200 of which are sent to Dublin, and hope to be up to a thousand a day by Christmas.
