Magill relaunched…

We hear that Magill has been relaunched (for the third time?) – this time it’s to be positioned right rather than left of centre. Does this betoken a sea change Irish political tastes since the birth of the tiger? It’s not in direct challenge to Vincent Browne’s so far excellent Village. But both may struggle to survive in what is a fairly tight media market.

    Magill’s day has come and gone. It can go left, right, up or down, but I think its value as a brand name has declined. Having an ex-civil servant who wrote a mildly amusing memoir of his days in the DoFA may generate some initial interest, but I can’t see how it can be sustained.

    I was initially wary of The Village, as I’m not a fan of Vincent Browne, but I have to say that I think it is a first-class production. I hope it is doing well.

    Don’t know a lot about Magill to be honest , although if it had Colm Tóibín as editor it cannot have been all that bad!

    Good luck to both of them.

    Could I suggest to the bloggers that they take a look at Hotpress theis week. It lists the top 100 Irish albums. Now that is a fit subject for a heated debate.
