free archive for local Irish papers

    Basically, no. Most INA hosted regional titles are INA-exclusive as they have done the OCR of the microfilms themselves - and I believe they have an exclusive licence to the Independent News & Media regional archive that INM did themselves.

    There are more local papers not archived anywhere than there are on the INA/BNA/ProQuest, remember - you'd need to hit up county libraries or the National Library for those. Where I live there's a still extant independent local going back to the 80s that would probably do 10x the local coverage of the main county big boy that's on the INA for instance.
