Irish Regional Newspaper Circulations July-December 2010

In the regional department only four paid titles managed to stay the right side of last years figure. In the main the local papers in and around the Leinster region seem to have faired out the worst (Callow People –22%, Leinster Leader –19% Fingal Independent – 15% etc).

Each of the regional's will have their own unique story, unique to their particular area. Naturally there will be a element of the macro economics in that yarn, but there will also be a huge element of the micro economics in there as well. Local factory closure, by-passes etc – elements unique to a particular area but that could have a huge effect on one particular title. No point going line by line here (thank God). Like for like: these are papers that have been audited every year since 2007, 48 titles. Its the only comparative one can draw from these figures. Titles with no figures simple are not audited any longer and may not necessarily be closed.
