For 15 years, Village has been challenging the cosy and others with principles of Equality, Sustainability and Accountability.
We aim to provide longer, investigative, fact-rich and evidence-grounded journalism, with integrity at its heart.
The Truth is our filter and those who betray it have always been aggressively called out by Village. Uniquely in Irish journalism, Village Magazine calls a liar a liar and a racist a racist.
Over the years it has championed whistleblowers such as Jonathan Sugarman over Unicredit, Gerard Ryan over the Ansbacher Accounts, Seamus Maye over CRH and Chay Bowes over Leo Varadkar’s leak of a government-negotiated draft contract.
It has stood its ground in the face of High Court defamation actions from Declan Ganley, Michael Colgan, Michael McLoone and Gemma O’Doherty, and threats or huffing from the likes of Denis O’Brien, Leo Varadkar and former Attorney General Paul Gallagher. Our independence means that we set our own agenda free from commercial or party-political bias.
Now it’s time to grow this agenda.
Village will never charge for online access. We will never impose a paywall as we believe democracy, in the era of #FakeNews, demands the most widespread access to accurate reporting and progressive opinion.
However, we need your support as print journalism fights a notoriously difficult battle. Please help us to continue to challenge the privileged, the powerful the wealthy and even the reader. Independently.
Whichever way you choose to support us, it’s fundamental to our future.
You can support us for €5 a month. For €10 a month you can become a supporter and receive copies of the ten editions Village prints annually. For €20 euro a month you receive the print magazine and a ticket to two political talks hosted by Village, annually.
All supporters are invited to submit proposals about issues for Village to investigate.
