The Dundalk Democrat is a regional newspaper printed in Dundalk, Ireland. Established in 1849,[1][2] it primarily serves County Louth as well as County Monaghan and parts of County Armagh, County Down, County Cavan and County Meath. It comes out every Tuesday with three editions: The Town Edition, The County Edition and The Monaghan Democrat. The paper is owned by Iconic Newspapers, who acquired Johnston Press' titles in the Republic of Ireland in 2014.[3] The Dundalk Democrat is one of two non-free newspapers in Dundalk, the other being The Argus.

The original offices of The Dundalk Democrat still stand at No. 3 Earl Street in the centre of Dundalk. The ground floor of this historic building is now occupied (in 2016) by a restaurant and wine bar called Riva Brasserie.
