We've been around a while. Our first edition was published way back on May 12th, 2009! We've witnessed websites come and go. Some earnest and well-meaning but without the firepower to sustain the pace. A few others succeeding with resources, canny and the appeal of buzzfeed style headline bait and best of lists. However, there's been nothing we've felt has genuinely filled a gap with solid and necessary discourse which spotlight cause for concern within our civic pride. We've been looking for a website and collective which genuinely adds to our conversations and outlook as opposed to trips over the laces of incumbents. Step forward The Dublin Inquirer.

Launched in June from "its office in Harold's Cross", it has genuinely contributed to our discourse and considerations about reportage on the city. It's been particularly effective in addressing our spiralling housing and rental crisis in the capital but besides this it is bringing intriguing takes on the city from a wealth of perspectives. We salute their work and encourage you to discover them too if you care to counterbalance cultural insights garnered from the likes of ourselves with some true grit.
