IRISH News sister company Interpress has scooped the National Newspaper Printer of the Year at the 40th annual Irish Print Awards in Dublin.

Interpress picked up the accolade at the awards which aim to recognise the country's best companies in the print and press sector.

With more than 200 hard copy entries to assess, the highest number of entries in four decades, judges had a difficult decision selecting winners across 33 categories.

But Interpress emerged victorious in its category, and added to its long list of awards amassed over the last six years at Ireland and UK level.

Irish News managing director Dominic Fitzpatrick said: "For Interpress to win this much-coveted national award yet again show the amount of effort that goes into producing The Irish News on a daily basis and all of our contract print titles.

"It's a tribute to the quality and dedication of all the staff at Interpress that they consistently beat off all rivals to win so many awards, and it underlines their dedication to excellence in print production."
