The recent survey carried out by the Killarney Chamber of Commerce has highlighted that the Killarney Advertiser is the main news resource for the town.
The survey of over 1,300 respondents – a significant sample for the size of the town – shows that the Killarney Advertiser is at the heart of the community for news – which is a great boost to the dedicated team here in our High Street office.
COVID-19 is impacting businesses across our community and causing hardship for many, the Killarney Advertiser is no different.
It was never in any doubt that we would continue to print during the lockdown and keep our readers informed on how COVID-19 was and is continuing to impact our community.
The team deserve a huge amount of credit for producing a high quality news magazine each week under the most unusual of circumstances.
We launched our ‘Support Killarney’ logo in March and focussed on helping businesses, community groups and sports organisations to get their message out there.
Our ‘Behind Your Business’ features and online videos grabbed attention locally, and we continue to be heartened by feedback from readers and advertisers.
To be No. 1 in Killarney for news is hugely gratifying – but our story does not finish there.
We are working on developing our website and social media platforms to remain at the heart of your community.
Continuous improvement in both our print and online presence is key to the future of the Killarney Advertiser and we are all mindful that we need to continue to improve each week and build on the last 47 years of publishing.
I would like to thank you, the readers, for your continued support and the many businesses that continue to advertise with us weekly that enable us to distribute the magazine each Friday.
