Daily Ireland folds…

The Daily Ireland, Andersonstown News Group’s attempt to shake up Irish daily newsmarket has folded. It comes as little surprise to Slugger regulars since the most recent figures indicated zero growth, whilst its main rival for reader’s (and advertisers) was the only UK newspaper to actually grow its figures. Staff were told first thing this morning and are currently in a meeting with the management.

Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
