BRIEF HISTORY OF CRUDE

The magazine, was originally Limerick based, aiming to give focus on Limerick talent and its alternative scene, but after it came into existence on December 6th of 2007 to a full capacity launch night at Baker Place, Limerick, there was a feeling in the air that this was something special.

Following mass media attention in publications and radio stations across Munster, and the request and demand of eager readers in our provincial neighboring counties, the natural step was for it to become an all Munster magazine and did so as of its second issue. But this wasn't enough. As the word of crude continued to spread, in September 2009, it relaunched as a national quarterly publication.

In November 2009, due to lack of advertising funds and economic problems, crude founds its new temporary home online, awaiting its return to the print publication world.
