About the Site
Krank.ie is an Irish news and current events magazine website focused on giving amateur journalists, bloggers and people with strong opinions a place to post and collaborate.
We promote the importance of regular people getting involved and airing their views and voices while staying informed with what is going on in the world.
In May of 2009, our original site was created purely out of luck due to a hosting competition. In February 2010, the website was nominated for the Irish Blog Awards as “Best Newcomer” and in March made it through to the shortlists.
In May 2010 we realised we wanted to do something bigger and better, so Krank LTD was founded with the main aim to create a better site as Krank.ie.
Krank.ie has been first to break a number of stories, had posts from people with many differing views and collected and contributed to numerous stories from around the world. We’ve been mentioned on Irish TV and radio, had stories appear in mainstream media and even been referenced in foreign publications.
We support independent people coming together to spread information. We love open source software. We adore the underdog and homegrown talent. Our main goal is to have a fully independent Irish news site that isn’t afraid to tackle important issues and have a lot of fun while we do it.
