The Irish Catholic is Ireland’s biggest and best-selling religious newspaper.
It was founded in 1888 by T.D. Sullivan, a former Lord Mayor of Dublin. The Irish Catholic, published weekly, provides a lively mix of news, analysis and informed commentary about the Church and social issues as they affect Ireland and the wider-world. The Irish Catholic is considered to be Ireland’s most-influential independent Catholic newspaper, having always been owned and managed by laypeople. The Irish Catholic has established itself as an authoritative voice of matters of religious and social importance.
