The Waterford Star joins the

Historical editions of The Waterford Star have joined the

This weekly paper, which was distributed in County Waterford's neighbouring counties of Kilkenny, Cork, Wexford and Tipperary as well as across its home county, was first published in 1848. It was established by Cornelius Redmond and was the first newspaper to be published in Waterford.

The BNA's planned holding, which is sourced from the British Library (BL) Newspaper Collection, will span 1893 to 1917. As with all titles in the BL collection, these editions are shared with the BNA's sister company FindMyPast.

With the addition of The Waterford Star, there are now 213 Irish newspapers in these online holdings.

The newspaper is still in print. In 1959 it changed its name to The Waterford News & Star.
