London-based Irish Post closes | Print |  Email
Sunday, 21 August 2011
The London-based Irish Post, aimed at the emigrant population, published its last edition on Wednesday following a decision by owners Thomas Crosbie Holdings. The company called staff to a meeting to announce the closure, due to the fact that the paper has been loss-making for the past five years. Set up by Breandán Mac Lua and Tony Beatty in 1970, the paper became the biggest-selling Irish community newspaper in Britain. It was acquired by TCH from Jefferson Smurfit in 2003 for £1.7m.
