Buy & Sell to go under the hammer

ASSOCIATED NEWSPAPERS has confirmed plans to sell the ad publication Buy & Sell.

Associated, which is owned by British publishing group Daily Mail & General Trust, said the disposal would allow it to focus on investing in its other Irish titles.

Kevin Beatty, managing director of Associated Newspapers, said: “As Associated Newspapers will now be focusing entirely on titles with news content, we believe that the future interests of Buy & Sell will be better served in the hands of a new owner.”

The title could fetch up to €20 million and there is expected to be plenty of interest in the Buy & Sell from Irish and international media groups.
