The Donegal Post is a local weekly regional newspaper published in County Donegal, Ireland. When the paper was first launched by River Media in June 2006, it served the area of south County Donegal, west County Fermanagh, north County Leitrim and north County Sligo.
It was soon joined by sister papers in Sligo, Leitrim, Cavan, Monaghan and Wicklow which have all since closed down. The Rivermedia directors have cited the effects of the current economic recession as the main problem leading to the closures. The Rivermedia Group now has seven titles in the group.
The Donegal Post is based in Cruagorm House in Donegal Town, and covers several other major towns in County Donegal, including Ballyshannon, Bundoran, Donegal Town, Glenties, Ardara, Killybegs and The Rosses area of west Donegal. The paper's popularity grew as a result of its snappy news style and pictorial content. In a county with heavy competition, it has been able to carve out its own niche and now has a regular weekly readership.
The paper's Editor is Michael McHugh.
The other papers in the group are the Derry News, County Derry Post and the Kildare Post.
