Irish Newspaper Circulations February 2014

The lift the papers got in January is well gone now and some of the publications dripped significantly. The Mirror dropped 2,900 copies (-5% on the month) leaving it at just over 51,000. The Irish Daily Star now at 61,000 whilst The Sun is down to 60,000 – down 7% on the year, The Star down 9%. The Morning are down 18,000 year on year and 8,000 on the month.   

In the Sundays, the News of the World went against the trend and added over 1,000 month on month. The decision to continue trying to flog the People in the Republic looks an erroneous one at this stage with sales down to 14,000.

The Sundays stayed the same as last month but are 28,000 down in twelve months.
