A PERSONAL letter to our readers from Stephen Rae, the newly appointed editor of the Irish Independent.
It’s a great honour to edit the Irish Independent, Ireland’s best selling daily newspaper. The readers of the Independent don't just buy a newspaper, they tap in to a reliable and trusted news source.
Every day, you, our reader, join a community of people who require the highest standards and demand quality journalism.
My mission is to deliver that content, in the best format, for each and every one of our readers across our platforms.
I am committed to using the best writers and commentators and publishing the most insightful journalism.
I intend using technology and our digital platforms to enhance the already massive reach of the Irish Independent.
I’m delighted to follow in the footsteps of confident and respected editors of the likes of Gerry O’Regan and Vinnie Doyle, distinguished journalists who showed great leadership.
My commitment to you, our reader, is that our overriding emphasis will always be on quality content, insight and fearless opinion.
I also want to take the opportunity to thank our readers for their loyalty, which has made the Irish Independent Ireland’s strongest and most trusted brand.
Our promise is that we will deliver the news, analysis, comment and sport in a strong and trustworthy format, blazing a trail in terms of technology and the finest journalism.
