This Sunday at 2.30pm.

At the Beatyard Festival in Dún Laoghaire Harbour.

A This is Banter discussion, entitled:  Better together: are Irish publications ignoring their readers? will be presented by Dublin Inquirer.

This is Banter writes:

Publications are finding new ways to use technologies to work with their readers — through collaborative projects, by asking them what they want journalists to cover, by realising that they can be allies in story-telling.

But how well are journalists and publishers in Ireland engaging their readers? How do both sides see the relationship? And could harnessing the opportunities that new technologies offer help to foster a new era of public-interest journalism in Ireland?

A discussion with award-winning investigative journalist Gemma O’Doherty, Dublin Inquirer managing editor Lois Kapila, DCU School of Communications PhD researcher and Institute for Future Media and Journalism member Niamh Kirk and Banter producer and Irish Times writer Jim Carroll.
