Three weeks ago the Donegal Daily team made you, our readers, a promise.
We said that despite facing a challenge the like of which this generation has never witnessed before, we would stand by our readers.
We started Donegal Daily ten years ago with the aim of keeping Donegal people, at home and abroad, in touch with all that is happening in our wonderful county.
In that time we have shared the highs and lows of history from Donegal winning the All-Ireland in 2012 to the sadness of the Buncrana Pier tragedy in 2016.
We have also endeavoured to bring you ‘everyday’ news events from every corner of our county including fundraising initiatives, community news and the very best sports coverage.
Like all other media outlets across Ireland, Donegal Daily had to assess where we stood when Covid-19 hit our country and our world.
Unfortunately, many of our loyal advertisers have been forced to close their doors and we feel their pain.
But they WILL open their doors again and we will be there again to tell their stories of how they got through this great struggle.
We genuinely hope that we are keeping you up-to-date with the very latest in news from across Donegal.
Our reporters are working every day from their homes and are trying to keep on top of the latest happenings both at local and national level.
And our figures are proof that more and more readers are logging onto Donegal Daily for that daily news as we continue to bring you more stories than ever.
The average number of pageviews on Donegal Daily EACH day over the past two weeks has been a staggering 220,000.
That is a bigger audience than ALL other local media combined.
In the last seven days, we have had over 1 million interactions across our Donegal Daily, Donegal Woman and Donegal Sport Hub platforms on Facebook.
Interaction on our Donegal Daily platform shot past 900,000 this week.
This interaction comes from you, our loyal readers liking, commenting on and sharing our stories.
We will continue to attempt to get to each and every one of your messages you leave us through social media and through our email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please continue to tell us your stories of how your local community is coping and winning the war against the scourge of coronavirus.
We will emerge from this stronger and Donegal Daily will be there to tell the story of how we did it when that happens.
Stay at home and stay safe.Tags:
