The Evening Echo is an Irish evening newspaper based in Cork and Limerick. It is distributed throughout the province of Munster, although it is primarily read in the cities of Cork and Limerick. The newspaper was founded as a broadsheet in 1892, and has been published in tabloid format since 1991.

The Evening Echo is owned by Thomas Crosbie Holdings, who also own the Irish Examiner. Unlike the Irish Examiner, which is a national daily, the Evening Echo's focus is on local news. Its role as the group's local newspaper was reinforced after the Irish Examiner moved from being the locally based Cork Examiner to being a national paper.

The Evening Echo is published daily (except Sunday). According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, it has a daily circulation of 26,946 (December 2006). On 30 March 2009, the price of the newspaper increased from €1.30 to €1.40.

For decades the Evening Echo has been connected to the Echo Boys, who were poor and often homeless children from the 1930s and 1940s that had the job of selling the newspaper. Today, the shouts of the vendors selling the Echo can still be heard all over the city. Other local newspapers are also printed in the city, but are less well known.
