The Irish Newspaper Archive is the largest online database of Irish Newspapers in the world. It contains complete archives of the Irish Independent (1905-Current), The Freeman’s Journal (1763-1924), the Nation (1842-1897) and many more leading national, regional and out-of date titles. To date the INA has digitized 19 newspaper titles with over 20 more titles scheduled for digitization.
The vast majority of titles run from their inception to current issues and are updated on a monthly basis. All titles are rendered fully word searchable and date indexed. You can also limit searches to pictures and advertisements.
Besides newspapers, the INA is in the process of digitizing other documents of historical interest such as directories and the vast Lawrence photographic collection, consisting of over 50,000 prints from early Victorian Ireland.
