Sammi Cox is our host for the Weekend Writing Prompt,
and today gives us NEWSPAPER.
The local newspaper here in cork is the evening echo. Years ago, you would be in town and here the echo boys shouting
“Echo, evening echo”
At the top of their lungs.
Happy memories of my childhood.
There are no echo boys left in the city now. That era has long gone.
There also used to be men who delivered the evening echo to your door, if you wanted it, you payed the delivery man at the end of the week. Even that, now has gone, nowadays everyone reads the newspaper online, or they read the local news on facebook or on their phone.
