Blood, sweat and cheers

Hello fellow Glasshouse Country & Maleny News readers! I am Kirra Livingstone, and I am the newspaper’s new (and first ever) sports journalist. I’m in my final year at the University of the Sunshine Coast and am so excited to be working in my first journalism job.

I’ve lived on the Sunshine Coast my whole life, and know and love the area well.

But I would love to get to know the community much better, specifically the sports clubs, athletes and sporting programs of the area.

So, if you are a club president, coach or organiser of sport related activity, and want to spread the word on rising athletes or your team, or if there are any sporting achievements from locals, or interesting/important events happening within your club or organisation, send me an email!

My email is, or call our office on 5438 7445.  I typically work Saturday-Tuesday but am flexible with my days and hours.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
