The Carlow Nationalist is an Irish regional newspaper, published each Wednesday. It has three comprehensive sections, containing news, sport and 'living' articles.

History[edit]

The first edition of The Nationalist and Leinster Times was published on Browne Street, Carlow in 1883. It later moved to 58 Dublin Street and then to its offices Tullow Street, which the newspaper occupied until December 2005.[1] Between 1921 and 1996, The Nationalist was Carlow's sole regional newspaper.[2] During the construction of the newspaper's new offices they used a space formerly occupied by a gym in Carlow Shopping Centre. The Nationalist moved into its new premises at Hanover House, Hanover, Carlow town, in early 2007.

The newspaper was part of the Thomas Crosbie Holdings group. Thomas Crosbie Holdings went into receivership in March 2013.[3] The newspaper was acquired by Landmark Media Investments.

Its current editor is Conal O'Boyle.
