rabble has been a fixture of alternative media in Ireland now for over 5 years now. During that time we have put out 13 deadly print issues, distributing well over 100,000 free papers across this septic isle and beyond.
We’ve done plenty more on our website and used our huge online following to spike current affairs and lent our social reach to dozens of grassroots campaigns and events.
For a long time, we’ve been a razor-toothed minnow in the broader swamp of what passes for media on this septic isle. We’re punch proud of carving out a space for ourselves with a dogged tenacity and if our recent survey told us anything, it’s that you lot really, REALLY value what we do and want us to keep her lit.
So, we’re turning to the Patreon platform to build a closer relationship with our core readers and make the project sustainable for the future.
Head on over and take a look. Join us in kicking back against the pricks.
