Another Irish title for British Newspaper Archive

The British Newspaper Archive (BNA) has added the New Ross Standard to its online holding.

This weekly paper, which is still circulating in the town of New Ross and surrounding areas of County Wexford and across the border into Kilkenny, was first published in 1885.

So far, 1,110 editions published from August 1889 to December 1910 have made their way to the online archive and are fully searchable, but the BNA's holding for this paper is planned to span 1885 to 2005 when its digitisation is completed.

The holding is shared with sister company FindMyPast and joins its Irish Newspaper Collection.

With this addition to the BNA, there are 160 Irish titles in the online collection.
