Access to Irish Newspaper Archives is FREE for 24hrs one day only, the Irish Newspaper Archives is offering free access to its huge database.

As mentioned in a post earlier in the week, the online archive, which holds titles from the 1700s to the present day, has been undergoing a major redevelopment in the last five or six months. While the site has been upgraded with many new features, scanning of old publications has continued. Among the most recent uploads are editions from the Cork Examiner, Skibbereen Eagle and Fermanagh Herald.

You can view the publications held in the database via this nifty county-by-county map.

Here are the codes to gain free access until 11am Saturday 15 February:
