Another County Galway paper joins BritishNewspaperArchive

Another Irish newspaper has made its debut – the fourth this month – on It's The Western Star, and Ballinasloe Advertiser, a weekly title founded in Ballinasloe in 1845.

It was founded and edited in its early years by the McClenaghan family, and continued in circulation until 1902. The BNA's holding will, when complete, span the entire period of its publication.

So far, nearly 2,000 editions are available to search in the database, with a gap between September 1869 and December 1888.
