Irish Newspaper Archives adds the Roscommon Herald

Great news for researchers with connections to County Roscommon. The Dublin-based Irish Newspaper Archives has added the complete historical archive of the Roscommon Herald.

That's 160+ years of regional news stories and features that your ancestors may well have read and discussed with family and friends. Maybe they're even mentioned in a report.

But the archive won't only offer the past. Current editions of the paper, which is the highest selling title in the area, will also be available. In total, this new online holding gives you 24,509 editions/169,468 pages to explore.

Just as well there's a long weekend ahead!
