More Dublin Evening Mail editions on BNA

The British Newspaper Archive has added more editions of the Dublin Evening Mail to its ever growing database.
  • Some 117 editions from 1854 of the three-times weekly paper have now joined the 1855 collection. This leaves some gaps for 1854, but there are copies from every week of the year.
  • All editions of the newspaper from July to December 1871 have also been added. By this time the paper was published daily, Monday to Saturday.
