Irish Examiner

This newspaper was founded by John Francis Maguire in 1841 under the name the Cork Examiner with the aim of backing the Catholic emancipation movement in Ireland, which among other things fought for the right of Catholics to hold seats in Westminster. In recent years its name was changed first to The Examiner and then to the Irish Examiner. The paper belongs to the media group Thomas Crosbie Holdings. Its readership figures have risen significantly in recent years, owing mainly to the large number of former Irish Independent readers switching to the Irish Examiner.
