Republic of Ireland members received a festive boost with the announcement that pro rata terms will be included in the cover price increases of several newspaper titles.

On Sunday, December 26, the recommended retail price of The Irish Mail on Sunday will increase by 20c to € 3.40. The RRP of Monday to Friday editions of The Irish Daily Mail will also go up from €1.90 to €2.00, with effect from December 27, while the Saturday edition will go up from €2.20 to €2.40, as of January 1.

JPI Media has also announced that Euro editions of the Derry Journal and the Londonderry and Roe Valley Sentinel will also increase from € 1.95 to € 2.05, as of January 4 and January 6, respectively.

From January 8, the price of the Saturday edition of The Newsletter will go up from € 1.90 to € 2.20, while Monday to Friday editions will increase by 10 cents from Monday, January 10.

Again, all current terms will be maintained.

NFRN Republic of Ireland president Martin Mulligan said: “This is great news and a timely New Year boost for our Irish members.

“When publishers put the prices of their titles up, there is always a danger that retailers will suffer because of reduced profits, which has recently been the case in the UK. But it is pleasing to see that our calls for fairness have been heeded by the Irish Mail and JPI.

“I only hope that other news publishers follow their lead and protect the profits of retailers who have kept the industry going during the last two years, in particular.”
