The Irish Independent

The Irish Independent is Ireland's largest daily paper and the flagship of the Independent News and Media group, which owns around two-thirds of all Irish daily newspapers. This stranglehold on the market is regarded by many as highly controversial. Circulation of the right-wing populist Independent has been in steady decline since 2007. Many journalists have lost their jobs due to cost cutting pressures.
