Thank you, the readers of The Echo and EchoLive.ie for continuing to support our products.
We are grateful that you give us your trust to report the news accurately and fairly in these very tough days.
As you can see in our pages in print and our stories and images online, the people of Cork have a platform here to access reliable content, which is important and relevant to all of our lives.
We are a community newspaper, with longstanding connections to every street, neighbourhood and organisation in Cork.
It is as a community that we will get through the Coronavirus crisis.
In these times of social distancing, with physical contacts no longer viable, other means of staying in touch are more vital than ever.
It is our privilege to provide channels to news, information and comment for communities throughout Cork.
Our reporting goes out in our paper, and on our website EchoLive.ie and on our social media platforms.If you have news that you would like us to feature, feel free to e-mail us at email@example.com, and we'll do our best to include it.
We also produce a daily ePaper alongside our uninterrupted, rolling digital coverage.
Remember, we offer home delivery at no extra cost for those who want a newspaper delivered. Visit newsdelivery.ie to find out more. You can download our e-Paper online via by downloading The Echo ePaper app.
Producing a multi-faceted product like a newspaper or news website in times of social distancing is a real challenge.
I want to pay tribute to our dedicated, highly-professional staff. They are the reason we have been able to deliver such excellent content, even as the Covid 19 crisis has accelerated.Our priority has to be their well-being, so of necessity, we have significantly reduced the volume of people working in our office and today's paper was produced entirely remotely.
Remote working brings its own demands and we appreciate how our staff have responded.
Some aspects of our content may be different. For instance, with sporting and entertainment events cancelled, we will look more to reflection and comment. We have been with the people of Cork since 1892, and it is our fond hope and intention to be with our community through this crisis, and when we eventually get back to normal life.
Let's stay safe and stay in touch with reliable information.
