The Herald is a nationwide mid-market tabloid newspaper headquartered in Dublin, Ireland and published by Independent News & Media who are a subsidiary of Mediahuis. It is published Monday-Saturday. The paper was known as the Evening Herald until its name was changed in 2013.
The Evening Herald was first published in Dublin on 19 December 1891.
Until November 2000, the Evening Herald was produced and pressed in Independent House on Middle Abbey Street, Dublin 1. The monochrome printing facility in the basement of this building was then retired, and the paper is now printed in full colour at a purpose-built plant in Citywest, along with the Irish Independent, the Sunday Independent and various other regional newspapers owned by Independent News & Media. In 2004, production of the paper was moved from Independent House to a new office on Talbot Street and the paper's old home was sold to the neighbouring department store, Arnotts, for an estimated €26 million.
In March 2013, it was reported that the Evening Herald was to be renamed The Herald. It is also set to become a morning rather than an evening newspaper.
The Evening Herald is available on the Irish Newspaper Archives website; up to 2004 you will only find "Black-And-White" microfilm pages but since 2005 the pages of the Evening Herald online in colour.
On 10 October 2005, a free version of the Evening Herald, published in the mornings and entitled Herald AM, began distribution, as a defensive measure against the Daily Mail and General Trust-owned Metro, launched on the same date. It joined with another morning freesheet Metro to become the Metro Herald. Herald AM later closed.
