The Limerick Leader has been the paper of record for Limerick and the Mid-West region since August 1889.
Ever since it has provided comprehensive coverage of every significant news and sports event and established itself as one of the country's leading provincial newspapers.
The Leader has produced many outstanding journalists, who have helped to ensure that its archive is by far the most complete record of events in the Limerick region.
Historians, authors, students and others interested in Limerick events and history have long regarded the pages of the Limerick Leader as vital to their research.
The Limerick Leader also has the most popular and widely used website in Irish provincial journalism.
The availability of many past editions of the Limerick Leader in searchable, digital format marks another significant milestone for the paper of record.
