The Irish media landscape includes some independent online news outlets, writing for niche interests and challenging established broadsheets who have been around over 150 years.

Ireland also has a considerable footprint of over 100 local, regional and community publications.

Your placement may see you researching stories, reporting from conferences and events, sub-editing, proof-reading, and conducting interviews. With the world of journalism changing so fast, you’ll be just as likely to be writing stories for an app as a print edition!

You might find yourself in a glossy magazine, penning lifestyle and entertainment features and attending launches, or writing copy for an online publication or journal.

Past interns reported learning how to write for a specific niche and audience, and how to craft more accurate, concise articles. At the end of the placement, you’ll be a better writer, guaranteed.
