Irish Examiner: Access via Irish Newspaper Archives database

The Irish Newspaper Archive database has added The Irish Examiner for the years 1841 – 1949. The launch of 108 years' worth of The Irish Examiner editions marks the completion of Stage One of the project to digitise the newspaper's entire archive. Stage Two will see the editions published since 1950 brought online and on a rolling basis all editions to be published in the future. 

The following titles have already been added to The Irish Newspaper Archive:

  • Ballinrobe Chronicle 03/02/1866 - 10/09/1903
  • Ballina Herald 06/08/1927 - 28/04/1962
  • Mayo Examiner 06/07/1868 - 30/12/1876
  • Mayo News 07/01/1893 - 29/12/2004
  • Western Journal 03/06/1977 - 11/03/1983 

Furthermore all issues for the Leinster Express (1831 – 1877) should be available before the end of the year, and all issues of the Sligo Champion, currently online from 1950 to 1981, should from early 2015 be available up to the current year.
