Topic

Covering news and sport across the Midlands, with four titles - the Westmeath Topic, Athlone Topic, Offaly Topic and Meath Topic, the independently owned media group has grown to become of the largest since it's founding in 1971.

Printed at the newspapers print house in Mullingar, each week we bring our readers an average of 72 pages of the most up-to-date local news and sport and with a combined circulation of 10,000 papers weekly. That means that 40,000 people read Topic Newspapers each week. 

Founded with the intention of being “a local magazine, aimed at all sections of the public”, in it’s first edition, the editor wrote:

“It is our intention to provide a bright, colourful magazine with the emphasis on articles, items of news and pictures, of interest to Mullingar, Westmeath and the Midlands generally.....”

“....The first step has been taken and we look forward to providing the community with an additional voice. Much within our community is worthy of comment. Today, more than ever, we feel there is a need for a medium to carry such comment, as well as helping in other ways to inform and entertain our readers...” 

Those words still remain true to 'Topic' - a newspaper group locally owned, produced and printed, and readers can still rely on the credibility found within the pages of Topic Newspapers each week.

We hope to continue to serve the people of the Midlands with the same mentality in the years ahead - determined to serve our growing readership with the stories and coverage they want from all over the Midlands, and beyond.
