This chapter focuses on media ownership and concentration in Ireland. Following a summary of the Irish media landscape, the rest of the chapter considers print media (newspapers, magazine publishing), audiovisual media (radio, broadcast television, video channels, multichannel TV platforms), telecommunications media (wireline and wireless telecom), and Internet media (Internet Service Providers, search engines). Overseas involvement in Irish media, information, and communications industries has intensified over the past two decades. These changes are associated with shifts in the ownership structure of Irish media and changing regulatory practices and structures. Irish media are strongly influenced from the outside, by ownerships from the UK and the US, and by UK media such as BBC and BSkyB being widely available in the Irish market. The major telecom providers are Eircom, Vodafone, Telefonica. The largest print publishers are INM, Thomas Crosbie, and the Murdoch group. In audiovisual media, the largest participants are the public RTE, the Murdoch group, and Liberty Media.

Keywords:   Irish media market, print media, audiovisual media, telecommunications, Internet, foreign ownership, BBC, BSkyB, Vodafone, RTE, Eircom, Murdoch, Liberty Media, INM
