Fifth Waterford title joins British Newspaper Archive

The British Newspaper Archive has added another Irish title: The Waterford Standard. This paper was published from 1863 to 1882 as The Standard and Waterford Conservative Gazette before changing its name.

More than 2,500 editions published between 1897 and 1950 are now available to search in the online database.

Waterford is particularly well represented in the BNA database. Five titles – Waterford Chronicle, Waterford Mail, Waterford Mirror and Tramore Visitor, Waterford News and now The Waterford Standard – provide excellent coverage for the county between 1824 and the 1950s.

This latest addition is one of 124 Irish publications in the British Newspaper Archive. These titles are also available via FindMyPast with an Ireland or World subscription.
