BNA: another Irish newspaper addition and 30% off
Step forward the Mid-Ulster Mail as the third new Irish title to join the online British Newspaper Archive this month.

This paper, which is now owned by Johnston Press, was first published in Cookstown, Co Tyrone, in 1891 and the BNA's new holding starts from that date. The planned archive will run to 1962. Available so far are editions published in 1891-1892, 1894-1898, and 1900-1909.

This latest addition means there are now 147 Irish titles available to search in the BNA database (and FindMyPast's Irish newspaper collection), 39 of them published in Northern Ireland.
