The Limerick Leader is no longer ABC audited for circulation numbers. 
The paper currently is distributed in two editions, City and County, with the selection of content differing between the two. Generally some shops in and around the city sell both editions.
In the 1950s the Limerick Leader bought a rival newspaper the Limerick Chronicle. The Limerick Chronicle was founded in 1768 by John Ferrar  who was a prominent bookseller and printer in Limerick. The Limerick Chronicle is the longest running newspaper in Ireland. In 2018, the Limerick Chronicle went from a stand alone newspaper published on a Tuesday to a supplement in the weekend edition of the Limerick Leader.
The main competition for the newspaper is the freely distributed Limerick Post.
