The Irish Catholic is an Irish weekly Roman Catholic newspaper, providing news and commentary about the Roman Catholic Church. The 32-page tabloid paper is delivered worldwide.

The newspaper is managed by a private limited company and is independent of the Roman Catholic hierarchy in Ireland.

The Irish Catholic was founded in 1888 by Timothy Daniel Sullivan, a former Lord Mayor of Dublin and an Irish Parliamentary Party (IPP) MP at Westminster. A number of the paper's early staff, including Patrick Fogarty, had worked at The Nation newspaper.

William Francis Dennehy ran the paper from 1888 until his death in 1917. Following a split in the IPP, Dennehy was an outspoken anti-Parnellite and supporter of TM Healy; an editorial which he published on the death of Charles Stewart Parnell, implying that the dead man had probably gone to Hell, was widely criticised. Dennehy was a close associate of William Martin Murphy.

Leo Fogarty, Patrick’s son, was managing director of The Irish Catholic from 1936 until 1977.

John Ryan was editor from 1936 until 1981, the longest-serving editor in the history of the publication.
