Lisburn Standard joins BritishNewspaperArchive.com

The Lisburn Standard has joined the online British Newspaper Archive, with (so far) some 3,781 pages published in 1878 and 1884–1959.

This weekly paper was published in the Antrim town, and circulated in its wider neighbourhood, carrying local and district news and articles of general interest.

Also uploaded in recent days have been sizeable updates to the holdings of four newspapers from the Republic of Ireland: Midland Counties Advertiser, Westmeath Guardian & Longford Newsletter, Sligo Independent, and the Meath Herald & Cavan Advertiser.

The British Newspaper Archive shares its holding with sister company FindMyPast. All the latest additions to the holding are now available in FindMyPast's Irish Newspaper Collection.
