The Irishman joins online British Newspaper Archive


The latest addition to the British Newspaper Archives is The Irishman, a publication that started life in Belfast in 1858 and moved to Dublin within its first year. Famous as a Catholic and nationalist publication, its masthead is awash with shamrocks entwined around the Gaelic typeface.

An initial upload sees all editions published in 1865, 1870 and 1871 made available to BNA subscribers*. In time, the BNA's online holding of this weekly title will stretch from 1858 to 1885.

* The BNA's Irish collection is also available to researchers with a FindMyPast Ireland or World collection subscription.
