Not quite what it seems…

Speaking of Cavan and Monaghan, here’s a strange one. The Belfast Media Group has a one page advert in the latest edition of the Irish Media Journal. The circulation figures may be a year old, but they were still at roughly the same level in the last ABC tally. But, as one Slugger reader points out, the inclusion of the Monaghan Echo in the footer is odd, not least since it ceased publishing in December.
