WE’RE NOT SURE what it says about our readers – or our stories – that no single news story dominates the list of the top ten most read articles on TheJournal.ie this year.
The stories that did make the list cover a broad range of areas. Several - such as the opinion piece about how to put a family business online or 21 reasons to be happy in Ireland – were one-off pieces, unrelated to what was happening in the news.
