The Dublin-based Irish Newspaper Archives (INA) has completed a major update to its database with the addition of another 68 years of the Munster Express.

This publication is one of Ireland's leading regional newspapers, and the INA now holds editions spanning 1860 to 2016. Published (still) in Waterford City, it covers the county of Waterford, southern parts of counties Kilkenny and Tipperary, and into western Wexford.

If you have ancestors from these areas, this paper is an important source of information about the society in which they lived and even the parts they played in their local communities. The birth, marriage and death notices are also particularly useful.

To celebrate this extension of its archive, INA are providing the very first edition of the Munster Express – dated 7 July 1860 – as a free download (click image above).

In addition, INA has a special offer available: a 15% discount on monthly and annual subscriptions to the online archive. To take advantage of this discount, go to the subscription page and use the coupon code MEX15. The offer will expire on 3 June.
