It was edited by Jennifer O'Connell in 2010–2011,[4] and by Susan Daly between 2011[5] and the summer of 2019 when Sinead O'Carroll stepped into the role[6] with Daly’s promotion to Managing Editor. The publication employs approximately twenty journalists.[1]

ContentEdit

TheJournal.ie produces 70 original pieces of content per day.[7] The website was originally divided into four components: TheJournal.ie itself for Irish and international news and opinion; Fora for business news; The42 (formerly TheScore) for sports news; and The Daily Edge for entertainment and gossip.

The Daily Edge and Fora are now defunct.

The42.ieEdit

The42.ie is an Irish app and sports news website, published by Journal Media. It covers soccer, GAA, rugby, athletics, boxing, MMA and other sports.

The website was formerly known as TheScore.ie before changing its name to The42.ie in 2014.

The sports site is run by Editor, Adrian Russell, with Niall Kelly acting as Deputy Editor.

In April 2019, The42.ie was named Sports Media Outlet of the Year at the Irish Sport Federation awards.[8]

TheDailyEdge.ieEdit

As of 29 March 2019, The Daily Edge no longer produces content.[9]

Fora.ieEdit

On 9 April 2020, Fora announced it was being shut by the parent company it shared with TheJournal.ie due to a decline in advertising revenue prompting the parent to reduce its costs in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Republic of Ireland.[10]

AwardsEdit

2011Edit

TheJournal.ie won three Eircom Spider Awards—Best News Site, the Digital Editor Award, and the Grand Prix Award for Best Overall Site. It also won two Irish Web Awards—Best Online Publication and Grand Prix for Best Website.[11] In addition, it won the award for Best Media/Publishing App at the Appy Awards.[12]
