« Co. Kildare Online Electronic History Journal Home »


For over a year now Kildare Library & Arts Services have had The Kildare Observer Newspaper online but it was only accessible to those in the know ot those who chanced upon it. It is a remarkable resource but the online version was a little slow and cumbersome.

The Irish Newspaper Archive have now re-designed it and improved its functionaility and it will become a major resource for researchers. Please remember it covers only the years 1880 - 1935 and that you must look at the instructional video or explore the technical sections to get the most from the paper. You can search or browse.


It is free and searchable courtesy of KLAS and KCC and we would like to thank the British Library for permission to use its archives for this purpose.

A very merry christmas to all our members, readers and friends from Kilre Library & Arts Services and Kildare Co. Council.
