Currently it is a broadsheet which publishes on a fortnightly basis during term time, however for the last five years it has appeared solely as a broadsheet. Trinity News is produced exclusively by students of Dublin University under the direction of a student Editor on sabbatical from his/her studies. This Editor must be a fully registered student in good standing at the time of his/her election however if subsequent to this the Editor elect finishes his/her studies it has been the practice to allow a period of grace for them to see out that print run as Editor.

Coverage

The range of topics covered in Trinity News varies from year to year due to the differing attitudes of its student editors. Generally it contains college news and sport as well as a variety of comment and feature material.[3] In recent years it has been accompanied by a supplement which has been known alternately as Trinity News Two and TNT.[3] This covers music, film, theatre and other areas of student entertainment.


Editorial stance

Trinity News presents itself as an independent publication with no direct political or institutional ties. The independent position of the newspaper is often established by contrasting it with its rival publication the University Record which is produced to represent the viewpoint of the Students’ Union.[4]


Trinity News is funded in part by a grant from Trinity College, Dublin but claims full editorial independence. This can be seen in the regularity of news and comment highly critical of the College Administration. There has been no evidence to date of the College successfully exercising undue editorial influence over the newspaper. Trinity College, Dublin TCD, corporately designated as the Provost, Fellows and Scholars of the College of the Holy and Undivided Trinity of Queen Elizabeth near Dublin, was founded in 1592 by Elizabeth I, and is the only constituent college of the University of Dublin, Irelands oldest university. ...


Though having no overt political links Trinity News has in recent times, with the exception of its last volume, been a liberal newspaper with left of centre leanings. In its last year however it developed a notably conservative edge carrying leaders suggesting the reintroduction of third level fees and the restriction of public access to the College grounds.
