Irish Newspaper Circulations August 2010

The Irish Daily Star took a bit of a bath last month, a period that should have brought some cheer to Terenure with the premier league and the tail end of the GAA. They dropped over 3,000 copies month on month. The Sunday Title, on the other hand, added 4,000 copies to address the balance in the daily market.  The Daily Mirror had another good month and if one looks at their performance over the year they are up nearly 3,000 since January. And so is the Sunday edition. The News of the World cant be happy with another drop considering the money they have lavished on the market this year. September might have better news as they were at the forefront of all the tabloid breaking news (cricket, Rooney etc). The Sunday market is up nearly 5,000 month on month (but down 40,000 year on year). The mornings are still gloomy down 2,000 month on month and 20,000 year on year.   Title     Jul-10      Aug-10 +/- M o M      Aug-09 +/- Y o Y Daily Mirror 60,813 62,091 1,278 64,948 -2,857 Daily Record 835 913 78 1,736 -823 Irish Daily Star 95,619 92,240 -3,379 99,317 -7,077 The…
