As promised by the British Newspaper Archive, yet more new titles have been added to the database's quickly growing Irish collection. With the number of editions available in brackets, the newest titles are:
  • Catholic Telegraph – 1862 (34)
  • Clonmel Herald – 1830 (101)
  • Drogheda Conservative Journal – 1837–46 (445)
  • Dublin Packet & Correspondent – 1850 (144)
  • Dublin Weekly Register – 1839 (50)
  • Roscommon Messanger – May–Dec 1848 (31)
  • Tipperary Free Press – (202)
  • Waterford Mail – 1834, 1838, 1841 (1223)
In addition, many extra editions have been uploaded for some of the titles already available online. The collection of Newry Examiner and Louth Advertiser has grown to nearly three times its previous size with 1,440 editions now searchable, while the Northern Whig has more than doubled to 5,059 editions. The Limerick Reporter holding has jumped from 617 editions to 1,107 and the Limerick Evening Post from just 17 to 452.

Smaller-sized top-ups have joined the collections for the Belfast Mercantile Register & Weekly Advertiser, the Galway Vindicator & Connaught Advertiser, and the Irish Racing Book.

The entire collection is now available to subscribers of British Newspaper Archive and to those with a World or Ireland package from FindMyPast.
