Notice to newsagents & readers

Following the recent closure of Celtic Media Print in Navan, Co. Meath, the Roscommon People newspaper has now begun a new chapter and is being printed by Webprint (Cork & Dublin).

We are delighted to have joined Webprint, which is the largest independent coldset web offset printer on the island of Ireland, and currently prints several national and regional titles.

As part of our move to Webprint – which took effect just before Christmas – the Roscommon People is switching to a new print slot.

As such, your locally owned, free community newspaper will now be distributed from lunchtime every Thursday from the 15th of March.

There is no change to our advertising/copy deadlines.

We wish to take this opportunity to thank local  newsagents/businesses and all who stock the Roscommon People for their ongoing support.

As Roscommon’s only locally owned newspaper – and one of the few remaining independently owned titles in Ireland – we at the Roscommon People cherish our close bond with our readers, the SME sector, and the wider local community.

If any outlet experiences any issues with distribution during this changeover, and/or requires extra copies, please contact our office on 090 66 34632.

*In beginning this new chapter, we want to note, with regret, the recent closure of Celtic Media Print. We thank all at Celtic Media Print for their support and friendship since the Roscommon People began publishing with the Meath-based company back in 2007.
