The Corkman is a weekly Irish newspaper.

It is part of the Corkman Group and based in Mallow. It is owned by the Independent News & Media group. The paper is primarily a North Cork newspaper, and also publishes a separate edition for Muskerry (Macroom - Ballincollig area). Its slogan is "Your news for the life you live", which has been in use since February 2008.

According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, it had an average circulation of 7,473 between June 2004 and January 2005.

Its notoriety for corruption stems from its defense of Labour TD Sean Sherlock, running a story on "death threats" apparently sent to his social media presence on the same week he passed legislation that would severely limit the web entrepreneurship and new media sectors, effectively strangling them in the eyes of the law in favour of old media.
