Two more Irish newspaper titles join online BNA

The British Newspaper Archive (BNA) has added another two Irish titles to its online database. They are:

The Dundalk Examiner and Louth Advertiser: This weekly paper, launched in 1880 as an extension of the Newry Examiner and Nationalist in tone, circulated in the northern half of Ireland. The initial upload to the BNA comes with all 208 editions published in 1902, 1903, 1908 and 1909. The BNA plans to add editions spanning 1881 to 1930.

The National Teacher, and Irish Educational Journal: All weekly editions for 1892 have joined the archive. The strapline beneath the fabulously confident masthead indicates the paper's intent and audience: 'The only Journal in Ireland owned by the National Teachers and representatives of their interests – A weekly Record of Educational movements and a medium of Discussion and Correspondence for Irish National Teachers'.

These additions mean there are now 116 Irish titles in the British Newspaper Archive.
