New Irish title for The Ballina Herald

The Ballina Herald and Mayo and Sligo Advertiser has joined the online BritishNewspaperArchive (BNA). This database is shared with some FindMyPast subscriptions.

The paper was founded in 1844 as a weekly and carried local news and advertisements, as well as some national and international news. It continued publication until 1962 when it was merged with The Western People, a title still dominent in the region.

When fully digitised, the BNA's holding of the paper will span 1891 to 1927.
