Inniú (Irish: Today) was an Irish-language newspaper, published in Dublin, Ireland, from 17 March 1943 until 24 August 1984 when it was merged with the Galway-based publication Amárach to form a new weekly newspaper Anois, which started in September 1984. Initially the paper was a monthly publication but in April 1945 it changed to a weekly paper.[1] The paper had offices on Merrion Square in Dublin. The paper was founded by Ciarán Ó Nualláin (who had worked for the Irish Independent and was the brother of Flann O'Brien) and Proinsias Mac an Bheatha who were disaffected with Conradh na Gaeilge and had formed a grouping called Glúin na Bua.[2][3]

Ciaran Ó Nualláin (1910-1983) remained as editor from its foundation until 1979, when he was succeeded by the assistant editor, Tarlach Ó hUid (1917-1990).[4]

The loss of Irish Government financial support due to rationalisation led to the demise of the paper.[citation needed]
