While the Dublin and London Magazine, nationalist in sympathy, sought to present itself as a cheaper Irish competitor to the New Monthly Magazine, the Irish Penny Magazine sought a much wider audience. Borrowing elements from the cheap weeklies launched in 1832, Charles Knight’s Penny Magazine and Robert and William Chambers’s Chambers’s Edinburgh Journal, it targeted readers who ostensibly included men such as Jerry O’Toole.

The writer (in all probability Samuel Lover) informs his readers that, in Wexford, a group of seven or eight peasants meet twice weekly in a back parlour of an alehouse, each taking turns to buy a copy of the Irish Penny Magazine. Larry Hennessy, who is always called upon to read aloud the ‘grotesque and ludicrous’ stories from the magazine, tells his companions that he once tricked some magazine editors into thinking one of his invented tales was an ancient local legend.
