It was founded in 1891. It’s published by Morton Newspapers, part of Edinburgh-based Johnston Press. Its editorial offices are in Cookstown, although there’s a local sub-office in Magherafelt too.
There are two editions: the main one, and a South Derry edition for Magherafelt. There’s also an associated freesheet, the Mid-Ulster Echo, which shares the Mail‘s website.
It comes out on Thursdays. An e-edition’s also available by paid subscription.
