Galway Observer joins BritishNewspaperArchive's Irish collection

New to the BritishNewspaperArchive database (and also joining FindMyPast's Irish newspaper collection) is The Galway Observer.

Some 2,993 editions published 1882-1884; 1889-1911; and 1928-1963 are now available to view. The online holding for this influential title will eventually expand to span 1882–1966

The database holdings of the following five Irish papers have been expanded in the last week to include editions published in the year shown below

  • Tyrone Courier (1880)
  • Wexford Constitution (1883)
  • Bassett's Chronicle (1885)
  • Kerry Evening Star (1902-1913) 
  • Ulster Echo (1892-1896)

As of this morning, both databases hold more than 69million pages of historical newspapers (British and Irish combined).
