Irish Newspaper News

John Grenham's latest Irish Roots column, Pure Irish Death, points out that "for more than 70 years, a published announcement of the time and place of removal and burial has been a compulsory part of every Irish funeral."
He recommends  the Independent and the Press, full runs of their 20th-century archives being available at Irish Newspaper Archive .
Irish Genealogy News reports the cost of subscriptions to the Irish Newspaper Archive have been cut in half, the annual fee is now €178 (about $250Cdn) and the monthly fee is €30 ($42 Canadian.) And the Irish Newpapaer Archive have recently added the Leinster Express 1950-2007, and Wicklow Newsletter 1900-1926.
Don't forget that the British Newspaper Archive, accessible through a Findmtpast subscription, have a collection of Irish newspapers.
