In June this year, the Evening Echo will be celebrating its 125th anniversary. The Cork Evening Echo first hit the streets on June 14, 1892, and has been a part of the city and county’s fabric ever since.
From world wars to St Patrick’s Day parades, from recessions to elections, in sporting fields, streets and houses all over Cork, we have provided locals with stories and pictures that have shocked, informed and entertained.
To celebrate our 125th anniversary we are asking you to help us find the oldest edition of the Evening Echo in Cork.
Do you cherish a copy of the newspaper to mark a special birthday, sporting achievement or wedding day?
Maybe you once featured on the front page or wrote an article we published?
Share your memories of the Evening Echo and Cork with us – we would love to hear your story.
The holder of the oldest copy of the Evening Echo will be presented with a limited edition bronze statuette of the “Echo Boy” by Genesis, plus lunch for two at Hayfield Manor Hotel, Cork.
