The Southern Star has a very rich vein running through it. It has wonderful tradition and loyalty among its readers. It began in the 1880s at a time when this country was in a very precarious state, politically and socially. It survived that period; it survived the 1916 period right through the War of Independence and Civil War; it survived two World Wars; it survived a few periods of mass emigration from this most peripheral of areas. It has survived and prospered.
At this time of great change in the industry, The Southern Star is strong and well positioned to meet the challenges for the next generation. While retaining all its old traditional values, the company will be a media hub providing an important range of services to the public and business community of West Cork, embracing all the new and exciting advances and developments in news, sporting and social media.
