In what can be seen as a vote of confidence in Ireland’s print industry, News Ireland has announced that printed copies of the Ireland edition of The Times will be available to readers from this Saturday, June 3, 2017 for the introductory price of just €1. The print edition will be available at newsagents across the country replacing the international edition currently in the market. The Sunday Times will remain at its current price at €3.
Building on the success of the digital version, which was launched in Ireland in September 2015, the print edition will continue to feature balanced, professional news and analysis from an experienced Irish team of up to 30 journalists including Niamh Lyons, Ireland political editor; John Walsh, Ireland business editor; Ellen Coyne, senior reporter and Aaron Rogan, senior reporter.
Furthermore, Donncha O’Callaghan, former Lion and Irish rugby international, will be covering events in New Zealand during the upcoming British & Irish Lions tour.
“We’re delighted to offer the print edition at a competitive price,” says Richard Oakley, “and we look forward to welcoming former Lion Donncha O’Callaghan to our editorial team. His knowledge and insights will be a great boost to our Lions Tour coverage and we’re sure new and existing readers will devour his comprehensive analysis of the matches.”
Readers will enjoy a range lifestyle content seven days a week, including interviews, music, arts, film, food and beauty in The Times Magazine every Saturday as well as in the Culture, Style, Magazine, Travel and Home sections of The Sunday Times.
