Daily newspaper to close after 25 years

The only daily Irish-language newspaper in Northern Ireland will close at the end of the year.

Eight jobs, four of which are reporters, along with some part-time positions will be lost as a result of the demise Lá Nua (The Day) after more than two decades.

Financial support from sponsoring body Foras na Gaeilge, which helped maintain the title, has been withdrawn and the last edition will be on sale tomorrow.
