Irish newspapers uploaded to FindMyPast

A lovely collection of Irish newspapers has been added to the database of FindMyPast Ireland.

They've been a long time coming (English, Scottish and Welsh papers, and even a load from around the world have been available on FindMyPast for some time) and I, for one, will be very pleased to finally get stuck into some Irish titles!

The publications included in the upload are:

Belfast Morning News: 244,591 articles, 1857–82
Belfast Newsetter: 450,369 articles published 1828 – 1900
Cork Examiner: 421,346 articles published 1841 – 1926
Dublin Evening Mail: 226,519 articles published 1849 – 1871
Freeman's Journal: 553667 articles published 1820 – 1900
Sligo Champion: 16,652 articles published 1836 – 1926

These titles are the same as those available on the British Newspaper Archives website, but are now included in an Ireland or World subscription with any of the international FindMyPast databases.
