Meath Herald joins British Newspaper Archive Meath Herald & Cavan Advertiser has made its debut in the British Newspaper Archive (BNA) today, helping the online archive to push past another impressive milestone as its page-count hits 36 million.

This latest Irish newspaper addition was launched in 1845 in Kells, County Meath as a weekly (Saturdays) title circulating in Counties Meath, Westmeath, Louth, Cavan and Kildare. The planned holding will span 1845 to 1932.

Only those editions published in 1877 and 1880 are available to search in the initial upload.

With the addition of the Meath Herald & Cavan Advertiser, the BNA and its sister database provider FindMyPast (via its Irish Newspaper Collection) offer researchers access to 184 Irish titles. Some 51 are from Northern Ireland.
