Wexford Weekly is an independent local sports, news, and entertainment website…
Launched in May 2017 by Gorey native Jason Redmond, Wexford Weekly has quickly become one of the go-to places for local news, sports news, entertainment, and information online.
Wexford Weekly is free and an open-ended site, which means anyone who can type, can send in an article to be published on the website, should it pass through our editorial phase.
Wexford Weekly is more than a Facebook page, a Twitter page, or a website. Wexford Weekly is a growing brand. In 2019, Wexford Weekly brought 250+ Wexford supporters on buses to Wexford’s successful Leinster Hurling final, which was followed by another trip to Croke Park for the All-Ireland semi-final against Tipperary.
In 2020, we travelled to Croke Park once again for Wexford’s NHL encounter versus Dublin. Not just that, but we’ve also been supporting local charities and GoFundMe’s in the locality and it’s something, that as a community page, we hope to continue doing.
As a community page, we’ve completed a successful #Covid19AllStar campaign during the Coronavirus, we have fostered new up-and-coming Irish talent through our new #WexfordWeeklyLIVE series, while we’re now currently running a FIFA tournament in support of a young Wexford girl. We’d be confident that if you ask a Wexford person about Wexford Weekly, they’d know about it.
In 2020, our presence on social media continued to grow.
Now with over 18,000 followers on Facebook, almost 5,000 followers on Twitter, and a newly created Instagram account with over 1,300 followers, the Wexford Weekly brand is out in the community more now than ever before.
We’re just about three-years into the journey at Wexford Weekly, and already, we are becoming a go-to source in the local area for news, sports news, entertainment, and information.
We are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us and for the world of digital media. We hope that you continue this journey with us and please remember, this would not be possible without you engaging, so thank you for your continued support.
