Well, this year went way to fast! I have put together the top 5 posts on our blog and Facebook page.
It is clear to see that everyone loves Irish music, as it was the leader in all categories this year. In 2018 I will focus more on Irish music related articles as it is clear that you all enjoy it.
I will also include approx views for each category and you can click to view any of the articles/videos.
The term “K” below refers to 1000 views. I.E 1k = 1000 views.
I found the Facebook video view counts very interesting. It shows you the total time the video has been watched by the number of viewers.
The links should all open in a new tab so you don’t have to keep clicking and going back all the time.
