What I'm sick of is the tabloid papers. There's so many of them in the Irish market. Nothing but junk. I mean The Irish Daily Mirror has front pages about how much Jedward are worth or some story concerning One Direction....who gives a feck!
Saying that I am a regular reader of The Irish Daily Mail. It is not as celeb or gossip heavy as The Sun, The Star or The Mirror and I just ignore the celeb or gossip columns anyway. Good price at €1 too.
If you salvaged the scraps from all the tabloids combined you still wouldn’t have the makings of a decent paper.
As others have said it’s the economics/business model in a crowded marketplace. There’s a gap in the market, but no market in the gap. Get online fast, the choices are so much better.

Secrecy is for losers. For people who do not know how important the information really is.

If The Irish News made a better effort to be truly islandwide in its coverage, it could fill the bill.
We probably do need a lower-priced broadsheet but we're more in need of a newspaper (broadsheet, tabloid or interweb page) with an alternative view of the news; sources outside the establishment, stories that wouldn't be touched by the named three papers. Stories that would pique the interest of (rather than pander to) the reader.

The Irish Times, and the Sundays need to get over themselves and switch to Berliner.
So many people are reading off a four inch LCD now anyway, they can let it go
The Irish Times is now €2. Up 10 cent. Disgraceful!
