The Newry Reporter joins British Newspaper Archive

More than 110 titles are in the Irish collection
The British Newspaper Archive has added The Newry Reporter, the oldest title in the Newry & Mourne region, to its online database. Editions available span November 1867 to December 1871.

Although the newspaper continued to be published after this end date, and is still published weekly, the BNA does not anticipate adding any more editions for this title.

The BNA's holding of this publication has also joined FindMyPast's Irish Newspapers collection.

Its addition means there are now 30 historical newspapers for Northern Ireland in the BNA and FMP collections. The total number of Irish newspapers in each of the collections is now 114.
