British Newspaper Archive: Looking good at 40-plus
The British Newspaper Archive is adding Irish titles so quickly, it's getting difficult to keep up!

With more than forty titles already online, the BNA database has seen three additional 19th-century regional titles put in an appearance this week. By my reckoning, there are now a total of 44 Irish papers available.

The newest are:
  • Connaught Watchman – 1852
  • Kerry Examiner & Munster General Observer – 1844, 1846-48, 1854
  • Limerick and Clare Examiner – 1847

These titles have also joined the Irish newspaper line-up in FindMyPast's Ireland and World subscription packages.
