The Galway Eye is creating a magazine / newspaper

patron

The Galway Eye launched in late September 2017 in response to the news that one of our local weekly papers - The Galway Independent - had ceased trading.

We firmly believe that the future of local, national and international news is exclusively online, that the days of ‘ink on paper’ are fast becoming obsolete! Perhaps, this is why it has become increasingly difficult for newspapers to sell their advertising space week-in-week-out and why in recent years your local paper has been delivered free to your homes. When was the last time you bought a newspaper in a shop? In fact, if you are under 25 there is a distinct possibility you have never actually bought a newspaper in a shop!

In addition to publishing news stories from Galway and beyond, we have steadily built up a team of 30 contributors since we launched just 3 short months ago. Our contributors write exclusively on topics about which they are passionate. We are currently publishing a new article at 7pm every evening with a goal of publishing twice a day within the next 3 months. We have published over 100 articles to date. To achieve our expansion goals we are also actively looking for new contributors.

None of our writers are paid for their work at the moment but we would like to progress to a point in the next few months where we can pay them for every article published. Joining Patreon is the first step towards that goal. Thank you in advance of your support!
