Four more historical Irish newspapers join BNA
The last few days have seen four more Irish newspaper titles join the British Newspaper Archive's online database. They are:

Armagh Guardian: Searchable editions available for this weekly paper so far include 1845–1847, 1850, 1852, 1863, 1866 and 1868–1870.

Munster express/weekly commercial & agricultural gazette: Only the edition published on Saturday 16 January 1869 is currently online. The BNA plans to add editions spanning 1860 to 1871.

Banner of Ulster: Now searchable are the fortnightly editions published in 1844–1845 and 1849– 1850, and the three-times a week editions published in 1854 and 1856.

Kings County Chronicle: All weekly editions published 1845–1871 are included in the database. The archive plans to add those 1872–1874.

The British Newspaper Archive's entire collection of Irish titles is also available on the BNA's sister-company FindMyPast, accessible with an Ireland or World subscription.
