Waterford News & Star joins Irish Newspaper Archives

Dublin-based Irish Newspaper Archives has added the Waterford News & Star to its database.

Editions published 1848-1979 have joined the
Irish Newspaper Archives database. More recent
editions will follow in the new year.
The editions now available online span 1848 to 1979, providing researchers with 169 years of insight into events in Waterford and its neighbouring counties (Tipperary, Kilkenny, Wexford and Cork) and national happenings.

Editions published from 1980 to 1999 will join the database in mid-January.

The paper, founded by Cornelius P Redmond, first appeared on 22 September 1848 (you can download a free pdf copy of page of the launch edition here). It was the first journal published in Waterford and positioned itself as a paper for all people.

To mark the upload of historical editions of this important regional paper, which is still published in Waterford, the Irish Newspaper Archives is offering a 20% discount on its monthly and annual subscription rates.
