It was founded in February 2001. It’s published by Derry News Ltd, based in Derry. It changed hands in 2006 when a consortium led by The Irish News and including Letterkenny-based River Media bought the title from the McCarroll family.
There’s a partner weekly title for the county, the County Derry Post.
It comes out on Mondays and Thursdays. An e-edition’s available on the website – which, however, appears not to have been working since October 2012.
