Mayo Echo - At the heart of the communityIn December 2004, we launched Mayo's only free newspaper - "Mayo Echo" - with a print run of 8,000 copies. Owned, designed and written locally, the paper is now regarded as the premier and most effective news and advertising medium for Mayo.
Due to unprecedented demand we have increased our print run to 24,000 every week, making us the largest distribution newspaper in the county. The paper is delivered by our professional delivery team to 11,800 homes in Ballina, Castlebar, Westport and Claremorris come rain, hail or sun, with the balance distributed through shops and businesses throughout the county. We also publish the full edition on the internet, and this has grown in popularity, with over 1,800 downloads every week. The Mayo Echo is widely regarded as the most successful launch of an Irish provincial newspaper in many years.
As a result of our fearless editorial policies, the paper is now regarded as the premier and most effective news and advertising medium for Mayo.
