During a period when a substantial number of newspapers and particularly the paid-for newspapers are suffering uncomfortable declines in readership, circulation and advertising sales, Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up the Limerick Post has again shown its strength by being the region’s biggest and most widely circulated local newspaper.ABC publishes its reports twice annually to monitor the accurate levels of newspaper circulation in both paid-for and free newspaper markets. Its circulation figures are the recognised gauge of factual newspaper circulation statistics.The report comes at a time of plummeting circulation in the sales of paid-for local newspapers. Countless local newspapers are experiencing falls of nearly 20 per cent in readership over the past two years.This tied with advertising sales figures in paid-for newspapers in free fall, as traditional newspapers like the Limerick Leader are being forced into massive restructuring which only recently led to the Limerick Leader transferring 19 jobs to the North of Ireland in a bid to survive.ABC also publishes the accepted sales and readership figures for all of the top national and international newspapers in Ireland and the UK.The Limerick Post total certified door-to-door circulation increased by a massive 1,620 a week to 16,693, plus it’s bulk circulation of 32,315 makes the Limerick Post the runaway leader in the race to be Limerick’s most read newspaper.Circulation figures for the Limerick Leader fell again to just 19,034 while figures for The Limerick Chronicle have not been reported for this period.The Limerick Independent has also failed to report bulk circulation figures for the second consecutive six-month period.Industry sources say that failure to report figures by newspapers that had previously done so is an indication of an even more dramatic fall in circulation than was earlier feared.Many newspapers have opted not to be certified by ABC, as they endeavour to conceal plummeting sales and circulation figures in a time of exceptional crisis for the media industry.The trend of decreasing circulation has intensified; with some papers no longer reporting figures, much evident in the latest results from ABC for Ireland’s local paid for newspapers. Industry sources are placing this failure to report figures down to the spectacular fall-off in circulation for many local paid-for newspapers throughout the country.The latest report from ABC, covering the period January to June 2009, confirms the alarming rate of decline for many local papers.However, the latest ABC figures show that the paid-for newspaper market in Ireland is suffering major losses in newspaper sales, advertising sales and more importantly readership.Many newspapers around the country are planning or have already implemented layoffs, wage cuts and working hour reductions in a bid to survive.

Olympiakos Beats Juventus, 1-0

first_imgTweetPinShare0 Shares PIRAEUS — Olympiakos pulled off another Champions League upset by beating Juventus 1-0 on Oct. 22 to go level on points with Group A leader Atletico Madrid.Swiss midfielder Pajtim Kasami fired the winner past Gianluigi Buffon in the 36th minute. The goal arrived after Alejandro Dominguez found striker Kostas Mitroglou, whose cutback was steered into the back of the Juventus net by Kasami.“Mitroglou got me the ball with his first touch. You don’t have a lot of time to react in the Champions League … so I’m very happy,” Kasami said.Atletico, which routed Malmo 5-0 on Oct. 16, tops the group on goal difference ahead of Olympiakos. Both teams have six points, while Juventus and Malmo have three points each.Dominguez sliced open the Italian defense all evening at Karaiskaki stadium, missing two scoring chances himself and setting up Kasami in the 60th for a shot that rolled just past the post.Goalkeeper Roberto maintained Olympiakos’ lead as Juventus piled on pressure in the last 25 minutes, twice stopping goal-bound shots from Alvaro Morata and also denying Carlos Tevez.Morata, who saw his second shot hit the crossbar after Roberto’s save, said he regarded the Spaniard as being “one the best goalkeepers in the world.”Olympiakos, which had already caused an upset in Group A by beating last year’s finalist Atletico 3-2, showed no signs of any nerves after a summer overhaul of its squad had led to lapses in defense in recent weeks.“It’s a magic night — we had a fantastic crowd and fantastic players. It’s a real team, that’s what we want,” Olympiakos coach Michel Gonzalez said. “I won’t say if I think we are close to qualifying, but I will tell you that we’ll be celebrating tonight’s win.”The Greek champions earned their victory after overcoming an early scare, with Omar Elabdellaoui heading a loose ball off the line in the 12th minute, while a Tevez header that found the net eight minutes later was ruled offside by Serbian referee Milorad Mazic.Buffon congratulated Roberto after the match, and veteran Italy star Andrea Pirlo was clapped by the home crowd when substituted in the second half despite his lackluster performance.Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said he had no regrets starting the 35-year-old free kick specialist. “I don’t think the squad was the problem, but the mistakes they made,” he said. “We can still qualify. I believe that.”last_img read more
