Please allow 3-5 working days for delivery.

Please note on some occasions such as bank holidays or festivals like Christmas Day there may have been no edition published on your specific date. In this case we will use the edition from the following date which will still cover the previous days news. Additionally we will still emboss the requested date on the cover of the Newspaper Book. Where the date falls on a Sunday we will reproduce the Sunday Independent.

Additionally for regional / local titles the paper was generally published once a week, in these scenarios and where the date requested does not fall on the date the paper was published we will take the closest date after the date requested which covers the previous weeks news. The requested date will still be the one embossed on the cover.

*Major News & Sport Events from That Decade are taken from national newspaper titles in all instances and not from regional titles.

    Ordered a book for 40th Wedding anniversary and couldn’t be happier with both the product and the service! The order came through in a couple of days. When it arrived it had been slightly damaged in transit. I e-mailed regarding this as it was disappointing. The service was amazing and had a reprint out in the next day!
    The book is better than I expected and I can’t wait to give the gift now!
    Would highly recommend!

    Just want to say a huge thank you for the beautiful bound book I received yesterday for our lovely Irish son-in-law, Alan Michael Kenny , (6/11/1977) I just know he is going to love it, he will I’m sure have one done for his Father who lives in Kildare! I did hesitate and nearly didn’t buy it because of the price but it’s worth every Euro ( or pennies to me ) , I didn’t realise it was packed with so much news and sports and Historic moments.
    Thanks to all your team

    I ordered last September for my father’s 90th Birthday, the book nice looking & delivery was efficient (hence the 2 stars) however, the text was so small that it was unreadable on most pages, magnifying it did not help, it just made it a larger blur. I contacted MM & 9 months later have still had no response from them. (unless you count the endless spam to my email) I expected more, especially when you consider that this was 3x the price of the same thing from an English newspaper …. Very disappointed.
