Help us keep hyperlocal journalism alive, restore trust in media and, most importantly, help give a voice to our local communities.
Local weekly newspapers have traditionally been the heart and soul of a community's identity and culture.
It has never been more important to support the local journalism and community publishers up and down Ireland.
Our industry is facing the most profound changes in the media business, ranging from the way news is gathered and presented on print and digital to the way it is funded. These changes threaten the viability of quality local journalism everywhere, including in our local Irish communities. The traditional business model that allowed local journalism to be primarily supported through advertising is quickly evaporating. The good old days of expecting local business advertising to fund the cost of operating a quality local media organisation are gone.
We need you, our loyal readers, who value and benefit from the professional reporting we do, to help fund our operation.
Thank you for sponsoring us.
