The Offaly Independent is a newspaper that covers Tullamore, Ireland and the surrounding area. It is published by Celtic Media Group.[1]

The newspaper temporarily changed its name to the Obama Independent for its June 20, 2011, edition to commemorate U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to Moneygall Ireland. The issue was intended to be a special souvenir edition of the president's visit to County Offaly. It was the first time the newspaper had changed the name on its masthead in 119 years.[2]
