Subscribing Makes a Difference

If you want us to keep doing what we do, we’d love it if you’d consider subscribing.

We believe depending on readers for our income helps keep us independent, and focused on serving you and the community we all live in. So we don’t sell ads – it’s our subscribers who make it possible for us to find, report, write, edit and publish articles.

Our articles regularly have real-world impacts, and get picked up by national media. But we’re a tiny operation, so every subscription really makes a difference.

More About Us

Launched in 2015, Dublin Inquirer is a local independent newspaper, dedicated to quality public-interest journalism. We publish online weekly and in print monthly.

We aim to bring you stories that otherwise wouldn’t be covered, and that you won’t find anywhere else. We’re committed to understanding, and helping readers to understand, what and who is shaping the city today.

We cover, broadly, housing and homelessness, transport, immigrant life, the environment and climate, planning, arts and culture, and food.

How We’re Funded

How a publication is funded profoundly shapes the way it covers the news. We are reader-powered. We depend on subscriptions, and we don’t sell ads. This means our focus is on our readers, and what we can do to best serve you.

Internally, we make financial decisions as a cooperative, meeting quarterly to decide priorities and decide how to budget. We regularly share our quarterly financials, so subscribers can see how we spend what we earn.

We’re a small publication, so every subscription makes a massive difference. In 2022, we spent an average of about 44,800 per quarter running Dublin Inquirer. Here’s what we spent it on:
