GoldenPlec has been running since 2002. We have been covering music in Ireland and supporting both Irish and International artists ever since.
Team members do not receive a wage and everyone works voluntarily on items they put themselves forward for.
In the summer of 2013, GoldenPlec won the Arthur Guinness Projects funding for music in Ireland.
GoldenPlec is currently maintained by a team of 5 deputy editors, 52 writers and 25 photographers.
