The Tirconaill Tribune is a local weekly newspaper in County Donegal, Ireland that circulates every Friday. The newspaper's headquarters is in Milford.

In 2008, the Tribune published the Government's decision to end disability allowances for teenagers between the age of 16 and 18. The paper reported that Tánaiste Mary Coughlan had met with concerned constituents and that the Down Syndrome Association had received confirmation of the change. Fine Gael TD Joe McHugh brought a copy of the newspaper to Leinster House to inform his leader Enda Kenny.[1]

Lawrence Donegan's book "No News at Throat Lake" is a memoir about his year long stay in Creeslough, playing on the local Gaelic football team and working at the Tirconaill Tribune.[2][3]
