The City is a multimedia news website produced by final year B.A Journalism and Master's in Journalism students at DIT as part of their courses in online journalism. It covers news, sports, arts culture and lifestyle features, and videos aimed at the 18—30 audience in the Dublin area. The site has been shortlisted for a number of student media awards, including website of the year 2015 and 2016. 

   

Clicnews is an award-winning website aimed at children aged between nine and twelve in the Primary school sector. The site is a collaboration between DIT’s Community links program and The School of Media in DIT. Students on the B.A. in journalism at DIT supply content for the site as part of their online journalism module. The students are also the site Editors and work outside of class on both evenings and weekends making sure that the site is constantly updated. The site is a recommended resource by the Department of Education and was one of three projects shortlisted for the international 'McJannet' prize which recognises exceptional student community engagement initiatives. 

    The Liberty, aimed at readers in the south-west and west inner city, a locality of social deprivation, change, and challenges. Incorporating the journalism skills and social knowledge acquired in prior studies, it allows students to move their journalism to a level where professional norms and sensitivity to the risks and rewards of actual publication are fully realised.
