Both Honorary Consuls saw through their respective diplomatic and consular work with their countries and their engagement with all other countries that had a diplomatic presence in Ireland, that the need for a diplomatic voice in media was important and necessary. As a result Diplomat magazine and diplomat.ie as its website was created.

In 2017 and in consultation with Jerome Mullen, Honorary Consul of Poland in Northern Ireland, Diplomat Northern Ireland was created with diplomatni.co.uk added.
