Irish Newspaper Circulations June 2009

Possibly a month where the recent declines seems to have, in the main, settled down. The Daily Mirror was the big loser in the mornings along with the Daily Mail. The Redtops had a torrid time in recent months, but last month it looks like the declines may have bottomed out. The Mail On Sunday robbed rival The Sunday Times of 5,000 copies in one single month. The News of the World made much welcomed gains this month.

Since the beginning of the year, the assembled papers above have jettisoned 37,000 copies collectively, with no paper gaining copies. The Mail on Sunday and Daily editions Would have been one of the biggest losers followed by the Star, Daily and Sunday. The Sunday Times losses were incurred mainly last month so its wait and see it they claw any of that back.
