After purchasing what turned out to be an expensive and utterly worthless subscription to Find My Past - I'm looking for a different online historic Irish news source. Find My Past had limited sources and what they did have in their newspaper collection was very laborious to search. Most of the collection lacks highlighted names / articles, so the entire page had to be read, in order to find the tiny pertinent details. They seem to be working on it, but it's definitely not there yet. Can anyone recommend another online historic Irish news source? I am interested in Cork primarily, during the period of 1850 to 1930.
Did Irish papers publish obituary and death notices? I am looking for that pre immigration generation, without any idea of their professions and addresses, so a "Cornelius Connolly husband to Elizabeth Carey, father to James, Patrick, Elizabeth, Hanora, Michael and Maria..." would be very helpful.
Thanks so much,
