The Irish Echo Forms
Sister Publication Alliance
With The Celtic Connection
By MAURA McCAY
The Celtic Connection is proud to announce of our affiliation with the Irish Echo as a sister publication. Based in New York City, the Irish Echo has been the very heartbeat of Irish America since 1928 and is the largest selling Irish-American newspaper.
The Irish Echo was recently acquired by an investment consortium led by well-known businessman and former GAA President Peter Quinn.
Seán Finlay, who purchased the paper in 2002, retains a significant stake in the newspaper and will remain on the Irish Echo's board.
Newspaper and internet publisher Belfast Media Group is taking a minority stake in the consortium and will bring commercial and editorial synergies to the Irish Echo Group.
Under the editorship of Ray O'Hanlon - one of the most experienced and respected journalists in the Irish-American media - the Irish Echo is committed to delivering a first-class new service from coast-to-coast. They also offer a new state-of-the-art 48-digital page-turning online edition to subscribers.
Now, readers of The Celtic Connection will benefit from this association through shared news articles. When combined with The Celtic Connection at very competitive rates, an advertisement in the Irish Echo gives you unparalleled coverage from coast-to-coast.
