"Huge amount" of Irish content to join British Newspaper Archive soon

Earlier today I asked the British Newspaper Archive (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk) via Twitter,when it was planning to release any further Irish material - because, let's face it, we've been getting scraps really since the whole thing started. I've just received the following response:

"We're already on the case - a huge amount of material from across Ireland coming later in the year!"

Watch this space... Updates will apparently be posted at http://help-and-advice.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/forums/243704-newspapers-we-should-add-next/suggestions/5991140-irish-newspapers-prior-to-1922
