The Gaelic American was an Irish Catholic newspaper published in the United States that was, along with the Irish Nation, owned by John Devoy.[1][2] A weekly publication of Sinn Féin, it was amongst the foremost Irish ethnic newspapers until the Great Depression when its readership declined. It had at various times as its editor George Freeman and John Devoy.[3] In its early years, the Paper collaborated extensively with the Indian nationalist organisations in Britain and the United States, most notably the India House in London and its sister organisations in New York. It reprinted articles from The Indian Sociologist and editor George Freeman was a close associate of Shyamji Krishna Varma.[4] The paper in 1910s also developed close cooperation with Taraknath Das and its facilities were used for printing Das's nationalist polticial journal, Free Hindustan.[5]
