The Connacht Tribune (An Curadh Connachtach) is a newspaper circulating chiefly in County Galway, Ireland.

The main regional newspaper for the county, the Tribune Group prints two titles every week - the Connacht Tribune on Thursday and the Galway City Tribune on Friday. Connacht Tribune Group newspapers are circulated in every district of the City and every town and village in the County. As of January 2007, its weekly readership is over 150,000.


In 1925, the Connacht Tribune stable began publishing the Connacht Sentinel, which was joined in 1984 by the Galway City Tribune. The Connacht Sentinel ceased publication in 2014. Since then, the Connacht Tribune has focused mainly on news relating to the county of Galway. In addition to a number of staff journalists, the paper also employs a number of reporters around the county for specific regional coverage.

John Cunningham was editor from 1984 to 2007.[1]

In 2006 the newspaper purchased Galway's local radio station, Galway Bay FM.[2]

In 2014, the final edition of Connacht Sentinel was published. [3]
