Irish Newspaper Archive continues to grow

The Dublin-based Irish Newspaper Archive has been busy in August growing its holding of editions for four newspapers, as follows:

  • Irish (Cork) Examiner: editions covering 1841 - 1989 are now online
  • Leinster Express: editions for 1959, 1976, 1988 & 2000 have been added
  • Sligo Champion: you can now search this newspaper from 1950 to current
  • Strabane Chronicle: editions published 1908 to 1979 are now available

The company advises that it is currently working on adding the following titles/dates to its database:

  • Irish (Cork) Examiner will be extended from 1990 to 2003
  • Kerry Evening Post will be joining the database with coverage planned from 1813-1917
  • Strabane Chronicle will see coverage extended backwards in time from 1980 to current.
  • Munster Express will see coverage extended from 1860 to 1917.
