The Ballymoney Chronicle

The Ballymoney Chronicle is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold inland of the northern coast of Northern Ireland (the “Causeway Coast”, named after the Giant’s Causeway), around the North Antrim town of Ballymoney. It’s a sub-edition of the Coleraine Chronicle – although its weekly circulation is currently substantially bigger.

The Chronicle was first published in 1844. It’s now published by the Dungannon-based Alpha Newspaper Group, owned by former Ulster Unionist MP Lord Kilclooney. The editorial offices are in Ballymoney.

There’s an associated weekly freesheet, The Leader.

It comes out on Thursdays. An e-edition’s also available by paid subscription.
