Good News Week for the Irish Newspaper Archive

It's good news all round from the Irish Newspaper Archive!
First up, the Leinster Express and Wicklow Newsletter have joined the line up of titles available. The Leinster Express editions now searchable date from 1950 to 2007, while the Wicklow Newsletter can be searched from 1900 to 1926.

As I write, the site is still displaying its Christmas promotion, but Irish Newspaper Archive have confirmed to me this morning that these 50% festive reductions will now become permanent. This means the annual fee is €178 and the monthly fee is €30. No doubt the site will be updated in due course to reflect the permanent change in costs.

The day rate of €10 remains unchanged.

And finally, here's a rather good-looking list of the newspaper scheduled for upload to the site this year (or early next):

  • Carlow/Kildare/Laois Nationalist (Carlow/Kildare/Laois)
  • Clare Champion (Clare)
  • Donegal Democrat (Donegal)
  • Munster Express 1860-1907 (Waterford)
  • Northern Standard (Monaghan)
  • Sligo Champion (Sligo)
  • Strabane Chronicle (Tyrone)
  • Waterford News & Star (Waterford)
  • Western People (Mayo)
  • Wexford Echo (Wexford)
