Do you wander around Dublin and wonder why it is the way it is?

Do you have questions about its parks? Its people? Its local politics? Its transport? Its landmarks?

We would love to answer those questions for you, or with you.

We want Dublin Inquirer to be more than a newspaper for readers. We want it to be shaped by our readers. Pssssst. That’s you.

In the past, journalism happened something like this: a journalist comes up with an idea, scribbles the article, prays readers are interested, and moves on. We want to shake that up.

We want readers to tell us what they care about, rather than us just telling readers what we think they should care about. It’ll help us to stay in touch with you. And as we report your idea, we’ll keep you clued in to our reporting process, so you can give us ideas to help us along the way or remind us of questions we may have forgotten to ask.

It can be the simplest question. Who designed those stained glass windows? Why are there so few food trucks in Dublin?

As we get more queries, we’ll let you, our readers, vote on which we should pursue. In the meantime, you can submit through the giant greeny-blue box in the sidebar.
