Dromore Weekly Times joins

The has added another Irish title: the Dromore Weekly Times and West Down Herald. This paper was founded by R J Hunter. It aspired to be politically neutral and was published from 1900 to 1952.

The online holding will not cover this entire span. Instead it will offer all 501 Saturday editions published from 13 May 1905 to 26 December 1914.

It is the latest addition to the digital archive's collection of Irish titles, and the 26th to join in 2021. It means there are now 226 Irish newspapers to explore. They are split 65 from the counties in Northern Ireland to 161 from counties now in the Republic.

All are available on subscription via the BNA or its sister company FindMyPast (Pro package).
