The Enniscorthy Echo was a local newspaper published once per week (every Wednesday) in County Wexford, Ireland. It was published in colour.

History[edit]

The newspaper was first published in 1902 from offices at Abbey Square, Enniscorthy, County Wexford.[2] In 1908 it moved its offices to Mill Park Road, Enniscorthy.[2] In March 2008, the newspaper moved to new offices - located at Slaney Place, Enniscorthy.[2]

The newspaper was part of the Thomas Crosbie Holdings group. Thomas Crosbie Holdings went into receivership in March 2013.[4] The newspaper was acquired by Landmark Media Investments.

In June 2017, a liquidator was appointed to the Wexford Echo Limited. The liquidator will keep the publications going while they seek a buyer. [5]

Content[edit]

The newspaper contains stories relating primarily to Enniscorthy town and its surrounding area, as well as stories relating to County Wexford.

It also contains a large number of photographs, which are published in colour. It has a sports section. It also publishes court reports. Advertisements take up much of the back section of the paper.[6]
