Irish News Archive cuts prices and adds Irish Examiner

http://www.irishnewspaperarchives.comThe Irish Newspaper Archive (INA) has, as expected (see last month's blogpost), dramatically reduced its monthly and annual subscription fees. It has also uploaded all editions of the Irish Examiner (previously the Cork Examiner) from 1841 to 1949.

The new subscription costs are confirmed as:

One Day : €10 (no change)
One Month : €30 (down from €60)
One Year : €178 (down from €350)

Weekly- and 48-hour-access options have been discontinued.

A subscription allows unlimited access to all the publications held in the database. You can see the full list of titles here. No doubt the Irish Examiner will be added to the list shortly.

The launch of 108 years' worth of Irish Examiner editions marks the completion of Stage One of the project to digitise the newspaper's entire archive. Stage Two will see the editions published since 1950 brought online and, on a rolling basis, all editions to be published in the future.
