One of Ireland’s largest longest established magazine Publishing houses has sold the bulk of its Irish magazine portfolio this week to a US digital media investor.
New York-based businessman Liam Lynch’s Irish Studio will acquire ‘Irish Tatler’, ‘Irish Tatler Man’, ‘U Magazine’, ‘Food&Wine Magazine’, ‘Auto Ireland’ and ‘Ireland of the Welcomes’ from Harmonia with Nora Casey retaining the position of chairwoman following the acquisition.
Ms Casey retains ownership of and will continue to manage’Woman’s Way’ and ‘Planet Women’ under the Harmonia brand.
Ciaran Casey will join Irish Studio in an executive role to roll out the new strategy for the six magazines. Ms Casey said: “This is an exciting development ensuring these iconic brands are moving to a company that will develop their digital presence and global reach.”
