More Irish titles join online British Newspaper Archive

The British Newspaper Archive (BNA) has added two more titles to its online Irish collection:

The Dublin Monitor was a three-times a week political and commercial journal published in the first half of the 19th century (as far as I'm aware it was published from 1838 to 1845, but I may be wrong). The 157 editions now available at BNA cover all of 1839 only.

The Drogheda Journal was also known as the Meath and Louth Advertiser. It was published on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The editions now at BNA are for the full years of 1828, 1833, 1836 and 1838.

In addition, all 1845 editions of the Belfast Mercantile Register and Weekly Advertiser have been uploaded. This paper made its first appearance in the archive just over a week ago with the 1848 and 1849 editions.

Don't forget: there's currently a 40% discount on offer for new annual subscriptions to the British Newspaper Archive.
