Regional Newspapers ABC Circulation July-Dec 2012

The decline in the number of Regional Papers being part of the ABC process is falling at a pace. Two years ago there were nearly 45 papers (paid for) certified by the ABC, now only 24 decide to confess annually or bi-annually.

The only papers to record an increase are the Echo in Dublin and the Donegal News Monday edition. Monday edition.. most likely still living off the special edition the Monday after the All Ireland Final in September. I don’t joke, sales up 25% in September for the Monday edition of the News!

Elsewhere in the parishes things are bleak, as bleak as they are nationally. They collectively are down 8% - mirroring the national picture. The big faller is the Leinster and Offaly Express but that because of the closure of one of the titles and the comparison is unkind at best.

Other than that, there is little to report.
