This section explores how flu is reported by the newspapers, looking at the regional impact, and telling dramatic stories of multiple deaths in households. It shows the changes in the way the epidemic is spoken about over the course of two years, and shows how it disrupted Irish society, silencing entire towns as it travelled through, disrupting business, court sittings, concerts, football matches and school life.
