AFTER 89 YEARS, the Connacht Sentinel has printed its final issue.

The putting to bed of the Galway newspaper has been described as the “end of an era” by publisher Connacht Tribune Group.

The editor of the Sentinel, Brendan Carroll, said “it’s been a blast”. He was pictured working on the final issue of the paper:

In a statement, the group said that this week marks “the beginning of a new dawn”.

But times are changing and so is the newspaper industry. And from next week, everything that made the Sentinel such a favourite with its readers can be found in the Galway City Tribune.

It said that the expanded Galway City Tribune will provide a new home for popular columns from the Sentinel. It is also to “embrace changing technology more than ever” on its website.

The group thanked the Sentinel’s readers and said:

We know that the Sentinel has been like a much loved friend to so many Galwegians for so long, and we have no intention of betraying that trust. We will give it a new home within the pages of the Galway City Tribune, continuing that same proud tradition that both newspapers have of reflecting all human life in the City of the Tribes.
