Clonmel Chronicle joins
Here comes the third Irish addition to the in the last seven days! It's the Clonmel Chronicle, an important regional paper for those with ancestors from counties Tipperary, Waterford, Kilkenny and even Limerick. It was published twice a week.

The planned holding will span 1848 to 1896.

So far, some 4,903 editions of the paper have been digitised and made available via the BNA database and FindMyPast's Irish Newspapers Collection. As far as I can tell, the holding is complete except for 1881. Whether the editions for that year are missing or will be added later, I don't know.

By my calculations, there are now more than 190 Irish titles (55 of them from Northern Ireland) in the BNA database.
