Our Global Audience
In the 1st quarter of 2013 Our Readers came mostly from Ireland, the UK, English speaking countries and further afield reflecting the spread of the Irish diaspora in places like Australia, the Far East and the United States.
Top 10 Countries our Readers come from:
2. United Kingdom
4. United States
This top 10 list was taken from our last 3 months as the races for the Eurovision National Finals were hotting up.
What’s interesting is the great support we got from Turkey during Irish National Finals ; Eurosong due to the Inchequin entry. The list also reflects what could be a natural affinity between Ireland and the Skandi bloc.
