Finn's Leinster Journal (1767–1801), later Leinster Journal (1801–1830), Kilkenny Journal and Leinster Commercial and Literary Advertiser (1832–1922), was a newspaper published in Kilkenny, Ireland.[1]

Founded by Edmund Finn in 1767, it brought prosperity to the Finn family. In 1777 after the death of her husband, Catherine Finn became famous for running the paper while raising seven children.

It was published in Kilkenny on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Some content was relevant to Carlow and it was sold as far away as Castledermot.
