All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Banbridge Weekender (defunct)

The Banbridge Weekender was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper delivered to homes in Banbridge town and the nearby villages in western County Down.

It was published by Morton Newspapers, part of the Johnston Press regional and local newspaper publishing group, as a companion to their paid-for title for the area, the Banbridge Leader. It shared its parent newspaper’s editorial offices (in Banbridge) and website.

It came out on Fridays. It appears to have ceased publication some time in 2012.
