Donegal News

The Donegal News (also known as Derry People/Donegal News and formerly Derry People) is a twice-weekly local newspaper in the northwest of the island of Ireland, first published in 1902. Originally covering Derry, Northern Ireland, it moved across the border to Letterkenny, County Donegal, at the beginning of World War II and took on more of a Donegal focus. It is owned by the North West of Ireland Printing and Publishing Company, which was established in 1901 by the Lynch family, who also own several other papers in the region including the Ulster Herald, Fermanagh Herald, Strabane Chronicle, Tyrone Herald, and Gaelic Life. Its two editions had a circulation of 15,467 for the first half of 2010, with the Friday edition accounting for most of the figure. Its main competitors are the Donegal Democrat and Derry Journal. The paper, despite a 'rebranding' several years ago, continues to be known, for short, locally across the northern half of County Donegal as The Derry People. ()
