March has been a great month at the Archive. We have added eight brand new titles this month including the Rutland Echo and Leicestershire Advertiser. In bringing online a newspaper for England’s smallest county we now have a newspaper for every county in England. And we won’t stop there. Our England collection will continue to grow. And watch this space for similar ‘country completion’ announcements.
This month also saw the addition of several titles for Ireland, including the intriguing Irish Society. The weekly paper, which called itself ‘the only society journal in Ireland’, did not publish reports on politics or wider news. Instead, it focused on society events such as engagements and marriages, soirees and parties. Our coverage includes issues for the period 1920-1924 which saw civil war break out in Ireland.
