Irish Newspaper Archives fills in the gaps

One of my favourite websites, Irish Newspaper Archives, has been updated with more newspaper records.

All the gaps in the archives for editions of the Freeman's Journal have been filled in, so that the complete offer for this important paper now runs from 1763 to 1924.

Issues published by the Ulster Herald from 1901 to 2012 have also joined the line up, as have those from the Westmeath Examiner from 1999 to 2007

The subscription-based website, which is free to use in many libraries in Ireland, has also announced its upload programme for the summer, as follows:

  • Kerryman 1904-1949 — July
  • Limerick Leader 1948-2000 — August
  • Belfast Newsletter 1738-1849 — Sept/Oct

Many thanks to MaryR for alerting me to the update.
