Local papers

    Do you buy a local paper? What do you think of them? Ive always bought the Munster Express although the amount of reading in it has gone down a lot especially since Covid with not much else to report on. There is not much coverage of court cases any more compared to years ago. They do have some interesting history articles. Local papers must be struggling in the modern era. I wonder how many they sell each week.

    The only one I'd read is the News and Star usually.

    News & Star every week. There's always bits and pieces in it worth reading.

    print media is in serious trouble everywhere, we ve found far more informative sources, such as social media!

    That was dripping in sarcasm. Very good. Unfortunately, in the responses above you can see that lots of people are probably worryingly misinformed or not informed at all.

    I buy one of the locals every week and usually a decent weekend paper. By decent weekend paper, I mean the irish times or Sunday Times.

    I wouldn't wrap me fish and chips in The Irish Times.

    Their podcasts are great

    news and star every Tuesday for myself, sometimes buy the Munster as well.

    Irish times weekend paper is good, though have been impressed by the examiner weekend version lately.

    so much is done online these days I do enjoy a real paper still
