Dublin Eve. Post and Vindicator join newspaper line-up

54 Irish titles included in collection
The Dublin Evening Post and the Vindicator have joined the British Newspaper Archives (and the FindMyPast Irish newspaper collection) in the last few days. The number of Irish titles in the portfolio, which is shared by the two companies, now stands at 54.

Editions from 1780 and 1829 make up those now available from the Dublin Evening Post, while the Belfast-published Vindicator has 1843 and 1844 covered.

The holdings for many of the newspapers already in the collection have also been increased. Among those to benefit from a significant top-up are the Belfast Newsletter, Cork/Irish Examiner, Limerick Reporter and the Enniskillen Chronicle and Erne Packet.
