Printing & Distribution


Mediahuis Ireland has, over recent years, consolidated the Group’s print requirements from three previously owned printing facilities in Dublin, Belfast and Newry, to the current arrangement whereby printing of the group’s titles is now fully outsourced to third-party service providers under long-term contract printing agreements. This has transitioned the group to a variable print operating model while optimizing the distribution network and reducing our carbon footprint. We remain fully committed to delivering trusted national and local journalism in a sustainable way throughout the island of Ireland as we continue our transition to a digital focused news organisation.
