1. What is AllAbout.ie?

AllAbout.ie is a hyperlocal news platform that makes it easier to track all of the interesting things that are going on in YOUR community.

Locally-based curators mine social media sources for the most relevant information on a town or local area, and publish the best updates to a dedicated website.

Curators also use social media tools – including Facebook and Twitter – to keep you up to speed with what’s happening.

Visit your local AllAbout for an at-a-glance insight into what’s going in on your town, follow us on Twitter or talk to us on Facebook.

2. Is there an AllAbout near me?

There may be – or there may be one coming soon.

Check our list of locations to see if your town is on the list of current or pending AllAbout localities.

Alternatively, visit any local AllAbout site and explore our countrywide locations via the dropdown menu under the logo.

3. How do I get an AllAbout in my town?

So you really want an AllAbout in your town? Get in touch with us and tell us why your town really needs a local news platform like this, and we’ll see what we can do about adding it to the list.

Alternatively, if you think you have the chops to make it as an AllAbout curator, tell us. We’d love to hear from people interested in joining our curator community.

We provide the technology and training – all you need is a nose for news.

4. How often is my local AllAbout updated?

Each AllAbout curator will aim to only update their site with valuable information on local news and events. That may mean daily updates, or several updates per day.

The more news and information we can discover, the more often your local AllAbout is updated.

5. I want to get something included on my local AllAbout. What do I do?

Got a local event you want to tell people about? It’s easy to get the word out through AllAbout.

Visit your local AllAbout website and use the Talk to Us box to upload information, pictures or video – or simply use the contact details to get in touch on Facebook or Twitter.

If we think our readers need to know about your news, we’ll tell them quick-smart.

Got a local Facebook page or Twitter account with regular updates? Drop us a line and we’ll be sure to add you to our list of sources. Got a blog or newsletter? We can add these too – get in touch with your local AllAbout curator and they’ll make sure you’re included.

6. I have a business and would like to run an ad on my local AllAbout. What do I do?

Click the Advertise Here link on the homepage of your local AllAbout and simply create your own ad – including images, if you wish – by filling out the required information fields.

Your ad will be submitted to the platform administrators for approval, after which it will be published on the site.

If you are a business and would like to publicize a local event or promotion with which you are involved, get in touch with your local curator as above.

7. I want to get something removed from my local AllAbout. What do I do?
