Further to my blogpost 'BritishNewspaperArchive updates holdings of six Irish titles' last week, I was surprised and pleased this morning to see another eight Irish newspapers featuring in the site's 'Recently added' column. In each case, the additions have filled gaps in the existing holding.

The additional paginations tot up to 78,000+ new-to-search pages, and are as follows: 

  • Belfast Commercial Chronicle, 1823-1824 (1254 pages) 
  • Dublin Leader, 1901-1938 (44,016) 
  • Dublin Shipping and Mercantile Gazette, 1872 (32 pages) 
  • Kerry News, 1894-1920 (16,716 pages) 
  • Limerick Echo, 1899-1902, 1904-1916, 1918-1922, 1930 (4,108 pages) 
  • Limerick Chronicle, 1826-1829 (1,662 pages) 
  • Roscommon Herald, 1871 (208 pages) 
  • Wicklow News-Letter and County Advertiser, 1886 (224 pages)

These updates will also be added to sister database FindMyPast where all 253 Irish BNA titles are available to those with a PRO or PREMIUM subscription.
