60+ Northern Ireland journalists, broadcasters and media outlets you should follow

UPDATE: This has remained the most visited page on this blog. It became woefully out of date (first published in 2012 and rarely updated). It was originally intended as a resource for young people interested in news and current affairs. Clearly there is a wider audience. I promise to try to review and update more often.

The list is random – there is no rhyme or reason to where people appear on the list. Just like real life. If you think you should be included DM me @davysims
