The Westmeath Topic is a weekly newspaper founded in Mullingar, Ireland in 1971. What began as a small A4-size magazine under the name "TOPIC", the newspaper has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of the largest circulating newspapers in the Irish midlands. Along with less than a dozen newspapers on the island of Ireland, it is still printed, published and owned locally. Of the fifty plus newspapers in the province of Leinster, it is the only one which is locally printed, published and owned.
