Update on Irish newspaper additions to BNA

The British Newspaper Archives has added some more editions to its Irish newspapers collections, as follows:

Dublin Evening Mail: All editions for 1849 and 1861-1870 are now available (these years previously had incomplete coverage). The 1852 editions have been added, as have those for the second half of 1871.

Belfast Morning News:
A few editions for 1857 have been added, but full coverage for 1859-1971 and for 1881 has now been achieved.

Sligo Champion:
All editions for 1926 have been added to the portfolio of this weekly paper.

There have been no updates to the collections of the BNA's other Irish papers: Cork Examiner, Dublin Evening Mail, Belfast Newsletter and Freeman's Journal.
