Two new online resources free to access in County Clare libraries

Here's some great news for genealogists and historians living in or visiting County Clare.

Over the last couple of months, Clare Libraries have been busy rolling out two new resources across the county's 15 branch libraries and one Local Studies Centre. They are (drum roll, please) the Irish Newspaper Archives and FindMyPast, two of the most important digital resources for Irish family historians.

Both databases are now free to access on library computers. Researchers needs to have a library membership card, that's all, and they can then search and download and print or save articles to their account.
