The statement stated that since June 2005 “we have strived to deliver a quality product to the people of Clare every single Tuesday morning without fail”.

The newspaper, which competed with the long established The Clare Champion, has faced increased competition in the last two years with the establishment of a local free newspaper, The Clare Echo.
