A good week for Irish titles: two more join BritishNewspaperArchive

Following the addition of two historical Irish newspapers earlier in the week (blogpost here) to the BritishNewspaperArchive's database, I wasn't expecting any more new titles from Ireland for a while. But another two have landed, and I'm not complaining.

They are:

The Munster Tribune
Published in Clonmel, Co Tipperary, this weekly paper circulated across the province of Munster from June 1955 to May 1967. The BNA holding will span these dates.

East Galway Democrat
This paper was published in Ballinasloe. The planned BNA holding will span 1913–49.

Over the next few days, the number of pages in the BNA will hit 54million.
