Could the Irish News overtake Belfast Telegraph?

The website Slugger O'Toole is running a post suggesting, on the basis of the latest ABC figures for newspapers in Northern Ireland, that the Irish News may overtake the sales of the Belfast Telegraph.

According to a graph running on the website, sales of the Irish News could surpass those of the Belfast Telegraph towards the end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 based on current trends.

Slugger O'Toole reports the latest figures show the Belfast Telegraph averaging daily sales of 58,491, a drop of 11.7%; and the Irish News 44,222, a fall of 3.2%.

There are some interesting posts. One noting that the Irish News has introduced a paywall.
