Two daily freesheets, Metro Ireland and Herald AM, are to merge to form one single newspaper, Metro Herald.

It is hoped the new title will serve the greater Dublin area with a 70,000-plus daily distribution.

Associated Newspapers and The Irish Times, owners of Metro Ireland, and Independent News & Media, owner of Herald AM, will each own a third of the new paper.

The merger is subject to approval from the Irish Competition Authority.
