The paper was founded in 1841 as the Cork Examiner to support the Catholic Emancipation movement in Ireland. Today the liberal paper is predominantly read in the south-western province of Munster, although it is distributed throughout Ireland. After a rapid readership increase around the millennium it has seen a steady decline since 2010.
