Tough times for many working in media these days but did you know The Irish Field is almost 150 years old and going better than ever?
This weekend is a big moment for us in The Irish Field as we have given the entire publication a makeover. We think the new look makes the paper a much brighter read. Still the same content but hopefully presented a lot better.
Like the Irish Farmers Journal, we’re part of the Agricultural Trust, which is arguably the ideal ownership model for a media company these days. There is no single beneficiary – we answer to a board of volunteers who represent our sector and any profits are invested back into staff, technology, market research or even grants to. Print is thriving for niche publications like ours.
