Kilkenny Moderator joins BritishNewspaperArchive
The online British Newspaper Archive has certainly cranked up its digitisation programme after the Lockdown, with several new titles joining the database this week.

As reported on Monday, the Lisburn Standard was one of them, and today there's another: The Kilkenny Moderator, a mainly Protestant and Unionist newspaper that ceased publication just before the establishment of the Irish Free State.

The anticipated holding for this title will run from 1825 to 1924. So far, 760 editions have been digitised, adding 3,054 to the BNA's Irish collection.

The BNA shares its collection with FindMyPast, its sister company.
