Newspaper archives - follow the Paper Trail

Follow the Paper Trail

The first stage of research for many victims and survivors is collecting and collating newspaper articles but this has been hampered by the ongoing pandemic.

Paper Trail can help, and for victims and survivors, this is FREE support as always.

Paper Trail subscribes to digital newspaper archives across the country and can do a specific search on behalf of victims and survivors.

All we need is a few details from you so message Ciarán using the form and he will get back to you before retrieving any newspaper information he can find.
