Astounding 25k per edition average drop in circulation over a year with the Sunday World. Can't be long till INM put the Sunday World to bed for good with no significant digital presence and no real future. Profitability margins must be razor thin at this stage.

Actually it's one of the most visited Irish websites or so I've been told

No idea about profits

It's not. It's the 588th most popular site in Ireland according to Amazon's Alexa http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/sundayworld.com

Revenue from digital advertising is likely to be tiny.

Which also explains why almost no print publications will discuss the property/QE bubbles raging in almost every developed city globally right now - because they are one of the few actual paymasters that the print media have left.

More trouble for the Irish Examiner publisher Landmark Media. The Sunday Times report that Landmark Media are working with KPMG on options for the company. One option is the sale of the Irish Examiner to INM.

I don't mean to alarm anyone but the Irish Times has now placed Ross O'Carroll-Kelly behind a full hard paywall.

Edit: apparently this was last week's instalment only. This week's is back to normal. Thanks Luan for pointing this out.

Ross O'Carroll Kelly - the so-called satirist?
Jonathan Swift must be spinning in his grave

Quote:

Paul O’Neill has been appointed Editor of The Irish Times in succession to Kevin O’Sullivan. Mr O’Neill has served as Deputy Editor for almost a decade under Mr O’Sullivan and his predecessor, Geraldine Kennedy.
He joined The Irish Times in 1989 as London Correspondent and thereafter worked as a news reporter, Crime Correspondent, Deputy News Editor and Finance Editor. He had previously worked for the Cork Examiner and the Waterford News & Star.
...

Mr O’Sullivan announced his decision to step down on Wednesday to a packed Irish Times newsroom. Mr O’Sullivan paid tribute to the editorial team at The Irish Times. He said: “In an unrelentingly challenging period, they ensured our journalistic output was frequently in the public interest and enriched the lives of a growing number of readers.”
He said although The Irish Times was facing a demanding period, success was already evident in many ways, with almost 60,000 subscribers in digital and print.

The chairman of The Irish Times, Dan Flinter, said:“Kevin has made a major contribution to the development of The Irish Times over the past six years during a period of extraordinary change in the news publishing sector.”
Mr O’Neill said he was honoured to take on the role of Editor. “The challenges facing so-called old media companies have been well ventilated. But the audience of The Irish Times continues to grow and now includes those who access our journalism via smartphones, iPads and desktops, as well as those who continue to read the newspaper.

Just came across the Limerick Leader's 'Pay-as-you-Go' system. It looks interesting, but I haven't had a chance to investigate exactly how it works. How are the micropayments made (5c to read an article, 25c for an hour of archives, 50c for a day)? I presume you pay €10 credit and work it down?

I think that has a lot more potential than fixed subscription charges. Could work for all kinds of websites. Even discussion forums. :nin

Interesting one alright. Ideal would be for all/most publishers to adopt a harmonised system so you didn't need to buy credits with everyone. You could just have 20 quid worth of credit and buy NYT articles for 25c, local news stories for 10c, Irish Indo opinion columns for 0.1c and so forth

Those Irish Indo opinion pieces could be where you go to top up your credit. It would be like getting paid for doing psychoactive medical trials except inevitably the outcome would always be shit.

Sorry I don't have a link but RTÉ Radio 1 was gleefully reporting a major downsizing at Communicorp at 6pm last night. It did sound like a bit of a bloodbath.

I guess they are seeing the same hit to advertising as the newspapers.

Irish Times could dip below 60,000 the next time around.
