The Leitrim Post was a local newspaper covering County Leitrim in northwest Ireland. The paper was one of a series published in the region by River Media and stable-mates included the Donegal Post and Sligo Post. For the first half of 2007 the paper's circulation figures averaged at 4,014,[1] The newspaper followed the same template as other papers in the River Media group which focus on lifestyle stories and an emphasis on sport. It was based in Carrick-on-Shannon and competed with another paper called the Leitrim Observer. The Leitrim Post ceased publication in 2009 due to a fall off in advertising revenue and a reduction in staffing levels that left it incapable of competing in the market.[2]
