Good news from ABC for Irish Times, Sunday Business Post | Print |  Email
Wednesday, 08 March 2006

The Irish Times recorded a larger percentage increase in circulation than any other daily newspaper last year, new ABC (Audit Bureau of Circulations) data indicates. For the six months to end 2005, sales of the paper were up from 114,528 to 117,320, an increase of 2.5% on the previous year.

The Irish Independent, its comparative figures still complicated by the launch in 2004 of a tabloid edition, achieved a circulation of 163,598 in the same time span, while the Irish Examiner saw an increase of 0.5%, from 58,778 to 59,070. Daily Ireland, which launched last year, is said to be selling 10,017 copies of each edition, while sales of the Evening Herald declined by 3.1% to 85,506.

Sunday papers exhibited now-familiar trends in the latest ABC reading, with Ireland On Sunday, the Sunday Tribune and the Sunday Independent all losing readers, although the latter retained its position as the country's best-selling paper. The Sunday Business Post, by contrast, recorded an increase of 5.9% to 51,500 copies sold in the last six months of 2005.
