Named after a Limerick working class paper published between December 1917 and November 1918 which ran for forty-eight issues, the first edition of the 1975 reincarnation of ‘The Bottom Dog’ was numbered Vol. 3, No 49.
The paper was revived in 2013 - further information on the revived paper can be found on its Facebook page .
