That's fair going on Facebook. How much do you have to part with to get that kind of a following so quickly?

You'd wonder if they're making much money though, are they in it for the long haul?
With facebook, only 1/5 posts will be seen by each follower.

They post an awful lot of shite, it's really shitty click-bait stuff.

They have this frequent post that come into me from them:

"Cork Dream Home"....yesterday it was a tiny crap ex-council house in Cobh.


It must be put together by an intern or a cheap robot (same thing really).

Mighty journalism here, everything you need to know about the Nemo vs Corofin game. (Except what day it’s on)

It hurts my eyes!

Is this the Cork equivalent of the Sun newspaper?

Did not want to start a new thread on this but am wondering if anybody on here knows about a publication called:

'The East Cork News and Star'

It does not appear in any of the archives in the national library which is not a good sign and a google search turns up very little. I found one link where they reference an article from it -they call it the 'News and Star'. The East Cork journal has nothing on its history. Would it be connected to the Waterford News and Star perhaps?

Can anybody here confirm that it existed? Able to provide other details? Frequency of publication, its lifespan?

Start a new thread, this one is about the Daily Mirror's parent company in the UK, who are attempting to take over the Cork online news market via a pretend-local website called CorkBeo that earns money by selling it's users data to hundreds of online marketing companies.

They roped in a former RTE employee as their "editor" to make it look local and he has one or two young helpers who roam Twitter and Instagram for content.

The Daily Mirrors objective is to put traditional local newspapers like the Echo out of business and be the dominant player in local online news markets.

They've a very good chance of pulling this off as their costs are very low, their articles are sourced via social media content (they don't pay journalists to actually pick up the phone to talk to people or research important local politics).

They can sit in the market like this for a long time waiting for publications like the Echo to fail so they can move in and soak up any remaining advertising.

In ten years time you'll likely be getting your local news from a British owned "locally branded" version of The Daily Mirror.

I have just logged on and it's almost the exact format as the Brentwood Gazette. https://www.essexlive.news/all-about/brentwood
Essexlive and CorkBeo are both owned by the Daily Mirror.
