– As confirmed by some of our advertisers

The Western People is the biggest selling newspaper in the North West, and one of the largest regional newspapers in Ireland. With the highest circulation in the region, the Western People reaches out to 50,000 readers every week.

In Mayo, the Western People outsells the combined totals of all other Mayo-based newspapers, and boasts extensive penetration in counties Sligo, Galway and Roscommon.

The paper brings the most comprehensive coverage of local news and sports events in the region, delivered by a top class team of award-winning journalists. In addition, leading columnists deliver their own opinion on matters of public interest throughout the paper.

It’s not surprising then that the Western People is THE MOST POPULAR MEDIUM IN THE NORTH WEST for classified advertising such as PROPERTY, RECRUITMENT, MOTORING, and ENTERTAINMENT.
