The Liffey Champion is a local newspaper for north County Kildare and the Lucan area of west Dublin. It is based in Leixlip. The first edition was printed on 17 May 1991.

Published weekly every Thursday, the paper has a respectable circulation. It is in a tabloid format, and varies in length, averaging about 48 pages long, with approximately half of its pages being printed in full colour.

The paper is currently priced at 1.90. Its journalists cover local authority meetings of South Dublin County Council and Kildare County Council, along with local court proceedings in Kilcock and Naas, and various meetings in the local communities. The paper provides its readers with extensive and accurate coverage of local news, major events and sport, including Gaelic football, hurling and rugby.

The newspaper is not a member of the Audit Bureau of Circulations Irish division, and as such, no official circulation figures exist. The publisher supplies figures of 7,500 [1] (free registration required). None of the other newspapers in its circulation area are members of the ABC either, so comparisons are hard to make.

Former journalists

Despite being a relatively small newspaper, the Liffey Champion has had a number of journalists and photographers who have gone on to take up a variety of positions in national and international media.

Former photographer Morgan Treacy, is a multi-award winning sports photographer with INPHO sports agency.[1]

Former Champion journalist Darren Ennis went on to work for the Irish Daily Star, Irish Independent and Newstalk radio station, before a career with Reuters (international news agency) where he was awarded global journalist of the year in 2009. He left Reuters in January 2010 to take up his current role as press, media and strategic communications advisor to Catherine Ashton, the European Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

Local journalist from Leixlip David Lynch worked for the Champion before working for a variety of other media, he is an award winning author, journalist and historian who has since reported from Palestine, Israel and Lebanon.[2][3][4]

Former Champion journalist Sharon Tobin worked as a news reporter in TV3 and now works with RTÉ News.[5]

Former Liffey Champion journalist Deirdre O'Keeffe was a women's magazine editor and now works with the Evening Herald and regularly appears on TV3's Midday programme.[6]

Former Liffey Champion News Editor Nicola Donnelly went on to become Deputy Editor and then Acting Editor of The Meath Post before becoming a freelance court reporter for national media outlets. In 2015, her talent was recognised when she became a Law Society of Ireland Justice Media Award winner.
