Irish Independent joins British Newspaper Archive

The online British Newspaper Archive has added historical editions of the Irish Independent to its database.

Initially, the available editions are those published from January to December 1905, 1907 and 1908.

In due course, the BNA intends its online holding to run from 1891 to 1911. Across this period, the publication was also known as the Irish Daily Independent and the Irish Daily Independent and Daily Nation.

The addition of this newspaper means there are now 146 titles in the BNA's Irish collection database, which is shared with FindMyPast.
