The Cork Constitution joins British Newspaper Archive British Newspaper Archive has added The Cork Constitution to its online database. This staunchly Protestant and Unionist newspaper ceased publication on Independence.

So far, the complete editions published in 1890 and 1891 are available for exploration on the site. BNA plans to create a holding that spans 1826–1926, during which it has been known variously as The Constitution, Cork Advertiser and The Cork Constitution.

The addition of this title means there are now 121 Irish newspapers in the BNA collection. This same collection is also available as part of a FindMyPast Ireland or World subscription package.
