MulkearLIFE has been delighted with the media coverage and related project exposure since the official project launch in early May 2010. The launch generated significant news exposure for MulkearLIFE and our work. At a local level media coverage this included print and radio coverage throughout the Mid-West region. At a national level the MulkearLIFE launch featured in the national press including the Irish Times, Irish Independent, Irish Examiner, Farming Independent, Farming Examiner, amongst others. National TV and radio coverage included TG4’s main evening news and RTE Radio 1’s Seascapes.
At an international level the Project Team are deeply appreciative of the support of the EC Representation in Ireland and the EC LIFE Communications Unit for featuring the official launch on their respective websites and related social media sites. This has resulted in a very significant increase in visitors to the MulkearLIFE website and has also led to an increase in correspondence and good wishes from both near and far.
