Limerick Post leads in local newspaper circulation race

first_imgPrint Paid-for newspapers circulation takes a diveLATEST audited figures released by the UK-based Audit Bureau of Circulation (ABC) puts the Limerick Post in lead position having the highest circulation amongst the regions local newspapers. 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. Media owners are now trying to reduce staff numbers to sustainable levels.Previous loyal readers of the paid-for newspapers are reluctant to pay prices in excess of g2 for their weekly newspaper when there is so much free news available through free newspapers and local radio. Owned by the media industry, ABC independently verifies and reports on media performance, providing a major trading currency for media buyers and owners across print, events, digital and evolving platforms.To checkout the latest newspaper figures online go to  Previous articleGig of the weekNext articleHowlett, Mafi and Manning start for Munster’s opener admin Email Linkedin WhatsAppcenter_img Facebook NewsLocal NewsLimerick Post leads in local newspaper circulation raceBy admin – September 3, 2009 873 Twitter Advertisementlast_img read more

Buyers continued to flood the market during September, say agents

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Buyers continued to flood the market during September, say agents previous nextHousing MarketBuyers continued to flood the market during September, say agentsLatest survey by NAEA Propertymark reveals long-standing sales and enquiry records being broken last month.Nigel Lewis30th October 20200820 Views Last month was record-breaking for the housing market on almost every front including an extraordinary 33% jump in prospective buyers from 365 per branch in August to 525 in September.This breaks a record set back in June 2004 when some 581 buyers were registered per branch.The figures are from NAEA Propertymark’s monthly industry snapshot, which reveals that – apart from first time buyers sales – the housing market continued to boom during September.Also, agents sold 14 properties per branch last month, a level which hasn’t been seen since 2006 and a 75% increase from eight properties a year ago.But signs that the market is beginning to come off the boil are within the Propertymark figures, which reveal that eight percent of properties sold for more than their asking price, down from 13% during August.The only sector in trouble is the first time buyer market, which now represent less than a fifth of all sales, down from nearly a quarter in August.Mark Hayward, Chief Executive, NAEA Propertymark (left) comments: “Buyers and sellers always tend to flood the housing market in September with the hope of completing their transactions before the festive period kicks off.“But the pressure of completing sales ahead of the stamp duty holiday deadline means we’ve seen a large spike in buyers and sellers coming to the market.”Read Kate Faulkner’s report on the housing market. housing market Mark Hayward NAEA propertymark October 30, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
