If it matters to you, it matters to us. That has always been the attitude of The County Down Outlook from it was first established by ET Brady back in 1940 and remains our motivation today.
This trusted community newspaper is driven by what impacts our readers from issues over faulty street lights to the scourge of anti-social behaviour, demands on our local doctors' surgeries and local crime.
We are proud to be at the heart of our local community and strive to accurately reflect local life. We sing the praises of local successes, grieve with you at tragic times and report the developments that affect you on a daily basis. We bring you information you just won't find online from knowing how your rates money is spent by our local councils to our privileged position in the press box seeing how justice is served in our Magistrates’ and Crown courts.
Editor Joanne Ross said: "The Outlook is unashamedly supportive of the community we serve. My view is that no story is too big or too small."

The County Down Outlook covers the South Down area including Rathfriland, Hilltown, Banbridge, Kilkeel, Annalong, Ballymartin and the wider Mourne area. It is based at 8 Main Street, Rathfriland, BT34 5PS.
