Roscommon & Leitrim Gazette joins BNA

The British Newspaper Archive (BNA) has added the Roscommon & Leitrim Gazette to its online database.

The initial upload includes all weekly editions published in 1863 and 1881, but the planned holding for this title will, when complete, span 1822 to 1882.

This addition means there are now 122 Irish titles available (for a fee) in the BNA archive. The complete line-up is also available as part of FindMyPast's Ireland or World subscription.

Researchers who can make personal visits to any of Roscommon libraries are able to view this paper (1822–1872) on microfilm, free of charge. See the full list of digitised and microfilmed publications freely available through that council's library service here.
