British Newspaper Archive latest: 61 Irish titles
Four more Irish titles have been added to the British Newspaper Archive this weekend.

They are:
  • Dublin Courier: 1766 only
  • Skibbereen & West Carbery Eagle/South Western Advertiser: 1867–March 1870
  • Waterford News: Sept 1848–Dec 1849
  • Weekly Vindicator: 1848 only.
My calculator tells me that these additions mean there are now 61 Irish newspaper titles in the database with a combined total of just under 120,000 editions available to search.

As with all uploads to the newspaper database, the new titles have simultaneously been added to the FindMyPast Irish newspaper collection, available via the Ireland and World packages.
