Less is more?

The Daily Ireland has announced its latest success.

It is cutting back its production to 5 days a week instead of 6. Despite its sales figures being static (if not down if you look at the use of bulk sales to keep the figures up) Mairtin O’Muilleoir is delighted and continues to demand public subsidy.

Does Daily Ireland’s failure to break the mould of local newspaper readership indicate a deeper problem for the republican project?
