Ballymena Weekly Telegraph joins online BNA

The Ballymena Weekly Telegraph has joined the online British Newspaper Archive (BNA). It is the 36th Northern Irish title in the database.

The initial upload sees editions available for 1904, 1906–1916, 1921–1929, and 1931–1957. When complete, the holding for this paper will eventually span as follows:

  • 1894–1918 The Ballymena Weekly Telegraph
  • 1918–19 Ballymena Telegraph
  • 1921–59 Ballymena Weekly Telegraph

Along with all other papers in the BNA's database (which include the Ballymena Observer) this title automatically joins the Irish Newspaper Collection as part of FindMyPast's Ireland and World subscription package.
