Leinster Reporter joins

The Leinster Reporter has joined the online (BNA) today.

The unionist-leaning weekly paper, published in Tullamore, Co Offaly on Saturdays, launched in 1859 as the Leinster Reporter & Central Times, and changed its name three times in the next couple of years until it settled on its final title in 1861.

Its initial upload includes 1,601 editions, all published in the 1920s, with earlier issues planned for upload this weekend. The eventual holding of this title will run from 1859 to 1929.

Like all papers in the online BNA, The Leinster Reporter automatically becomes available in FindMyPast's (Irish) Newspaper Collection, so you can take your pick where you choose to view and search it.
