The price of Irish newspapers(ROI) is crazy. The 3 main daily newspapers(Irish Independent, Irish Times & Irish Examiner) are far too expensive(1.80 for a daily newspaper) . They have not brought down their prices, yet they continuously lecture everyone else about bringing down prices. An average newspaper in the North, Irish News, Belfast Telegraph etc , can be bought for 65pence(0.75). This is nearly 60% cheaper than newspapers in the South. How can Irish newspaper publishers justify the difference in cost? I'm very surprised there hasn't been a newspaper price war in the South. I wonder is there an unofficial cartel in operation? Maybe the Competition Authority should investigate the Irish newspaper industry?
