Find Irish Media & Journalists on Twitter

Share to Reddit

About a month ago the Fingal Business Network put on an event, Getting PR Through Social Media.  As a follow up, I prepared a list of Irish Media and Journalists on Twitter for you to use in your own media outreach (included below).

The task of attracting natural links and social mentions through content marketing is an important part of modern SEO.  We talk a lot about working to identify markets for your content.  In large part, that means identifying individuals who control links or who are active on social networks.  Traditional media and bloggers both come slap bang into the middle of that process.  So PR and SEO are fields that have been getting closer over the last few years.  Having an experienced PR professional discuss using social media to identify and reach out to journalists and bloggers is right up my street.

The talk was great, so congrats to Eoin Kennedy who presented and to the Fingal Business Network for a fantastic event and an impressive turnout.   If you are interested, you can see the slide deck from the event here:

List of Irish Media on Twitter

Before I get to the list, I should say that this is not some target list for you to spam.  It is an opportunity to listen and engage with media relevant to what you do.  Some of those listed here barely use Twitter at all or only to spew out intro’s to their stories.  Others are openly engaged in discussion and some are actively soliciting story ideas in their profile description.  All the usual social media warnings apply.  You should probably listen more than you talk.

I have included all the media types I could find.  Only some of them will be relevant to what you do.  Only some will say things that interest you.  Only some will cover areas where your expertise might someday add something.  Hopefully the list can provide a starting point and help you find the journalists that are relevant to your message.  You can find out what they have to say, identify what kinds of stories they cover and perhaps figure out how you could help them.  If what they talk about interests you, you can comment and start a relationship.

Irish Journalists and Media, Twitter List

The following list of journalists and Irish media includes names, twitter handles and twitter descriptions.  Where email addresses and telephone numbers were included in descriptions, we have edited them out so as not to make the job of spam bots any easier.  You can click on the link to the twitter profile  and find the details there.

    Hi Alastair,
    Thats an exhaustive list and congrats on pulling it together. The small voice in my head keeps telling me to update a similar list I did yonks ago. I try to track any extra Irish media that I find with Twitter lists but think its ripe for a good search app.

  2. David Doyle says:

    Great that someone has put together a comprehensive list of the ‘who’s who’ of Irish Media Twitter Contacts. Sure we could all nominate a missing one or two but like ‘The Hollywood Walk of Fame’ everyone that’s their, desires to be their!

    Hi Eoin

    I’m sure I don’t have nearly all of them. They seem to be everywhere.

    Some of us are not daily or avid tweeters, but prone to dipping in & out when we remember, or have time to! @nicola_cooke

    Hi Nicola

    Thanks for stopping by.

    I am myself only a part time twitterer, so I totally understand the dipping in and out thing.
