For one day only, the Irish Newspaper Archives is offering free access to its huge database.
The online archive, which holds titles from the 1700s to the present day, has been undergoing a major redevelopment in the last six or seven months. While the site has been upgraded with many new features, scanning of old publications has continued. Among the most recent titles to make their debut on the site are the Dundalk Democrat and Connaught Telegraph, which arrived earlier today (see blogpost).
You can view the publications held in the database via this nifty county-by-county map.
Here are the codes to gain free access until 11am Thursday 17 April 2014:
