Nine fallers and four managed a gain in the latest JNRS released today. The Irish Independent and the Mirror share the stage (probably for the first time), but both for very different reasons.

Also in the morning market, The Irish Times suffered a fall of nearly 9% to 310,000 readers per day. The Star dropped 12,000 and The Sun nearly managed to hang on to last year’s figure as did the Daily Mail. Then only title to see an increase in readership was the Examiner gaining 6,000. The big faller (in percentage terms) was the Sunday Business Post losing nearly to one fifth of its readers and falling 33,000 to 154,000.
