Irish Newspaper Archive grows online collection

Irish Newspaper Archive has seen a splurge of new titles and additional dates to its subscription database, as follows:
  • Belfast Newsletter 1800–1890
  • Donegal News: 1903–current
  • Fermanagh Herald: 1903–1910
  • Longford Leader: 1897–1949
Philip Martin, director of the family firm that runs the archive, told Irish Genealogy News some time back that the company hopes to have online at least one newspaper title per historical Irish county by the end of this year, and looks to be on target. By early autumn, the following uploads are expected to have been added:
  • Longford Leader: 1950–2003
  • Dundalk Democrat: 1849–1907
  • Fermanagh Herald: 1911–1959
