The local news that matters – when it matters

HERE’S a good news story: is the talk of the town – but don’t just take out word for it.

Detailed analysis of our online news service reveals an average readership of 320,000 in any given four-week period.

That’s over 10,000 readers every single day who turn to us to keep them in the know.

We are extremely proud and very grateful for that wonderful support and, in turn, we promise to keep on bringing you the local news that matters – when it matters.

We are determined to avoid charging a fee for the 24/7 service we provide – as most regional and national newspapers and online sites have already done – but to maintain this quality service in its current format, public support is essential. And that’s where you can lend a hand.

To support just go to or click on any of the promotions on the home page and press the DONATE button on Paypal.

Alternatively, you can agree to a €10 per month (€2.50 per week) subscription via your bank (details on the link). It’s cheaper than the price of a pint and it comes to you every day of the week.

In return, we promise to keep on bringing you all the breaking news as it happens in a manner that will inform, entertain and put you in the picture. We celebrate our achievers, we question our public representatives, we raise the local issues, we mourn our neighbours that pass on. And we fully intend to keep on doing that– but we need a helping hand.

The numbers speak for themselves – is the talk of the town – and together we can keep it that way.
