Waterford and Tramore newspaper joins BNA
The latest Irish title to join the British Newspaper Archive is the Waterford Mirror and Tramore Visitor. Distributed on Wednesdays, it published a mixture of local, national and international news and advertisements.

The BNA plans to create an online holding for this paper spanning 1860 to 1910 ie the full extent of its publication.

The initial upload sees full-year editions of the weekly paper available for 1862–1868; 1872; 1884–1886; 1888; 1891–1892; and 1896.

As well as being available via the BNA website, this title has joined the line-up of 123 Irish titles available via FindMyPast's Ireland and World subscriptions.
