Editor of Cork Beo, Joe O’Shea said: “The team here at CorkBeo are delighted with the recognition for our efforts over the past year and this second award for our title, following on from the Cork Digital Marketing Awards just months after we went live.
“It’s been a very challenging year for Cork in so many ways, but we are proud that we have kept the people of Cork informed and up to date on everything that is happening across the city and county. And we are now focusing on the very positive times ahead,” says Joe O’Shea, editor of Cork Beo.
