Clare’s most read newspaper made a surprise cameo appearance on one of the country’s most watched television shows.
Following on from confirmation last week that The Clare Echo is the most read newspaper in the county as per an audit from ABC, the profile of the media outlet continues to rise.
Eagle eyed viewers of RTÉ soap opera Fair City, noticed the character of Orla Molloy played by Sorcha Furlong taking time out in Carrigstown to read an edition of the paper.
Jim’s Roofing which has become synonymous for its extensive advertising on the backpage of The Clare Echo was visible to viewers of the RTÉ soap. A potential appearance of Jim cleaning the roofs of Carrigstown’s residents such as Carol Foley, Paul Brennan and Bela Doyle has not been ruled out.
Sources close to The Clare Echo have said that management are believed to be plotting to get a copy of the paper to Summer Bay for Home and Away icon Alf Stewart to have a glance over while sipping on his morning cuppa at the Diner.
