News Ireland has announced that printed copies of the Ireland edition of The Times will be available to readers from Saturday, June 3, 2017 for the introductory price of one euro (€1). The print edition will be available from newsagents across the country replacing the international edition currently in the market. The Sunday Times will remain at its current price at €3.00.
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 international, will be ensuring our readers are kept well informed on events in New Zealand during the upcoming British and Ireland tour as he writes exclusively for the Ireland edition of The Times.
Donncha will be joining a talented team of sports writers which includes Ronan Early, Garry Doyle, Ewan McKenna, Christy O’Connor, Enda McEvoy, Denis Walsh and Michael Foley. Throughout the summer, the team will continue to report and provide authoritative analysis on the Lions Tour, the GAA Championship and a wide variety of other sports, including the Women’s Rugby World Cup which will take place in Ireland in August 2017.
Richard Oakley, Editor of The Ireland edition of The Times, said:
“We’re delighted to offer the print edition at a competitive price and 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.”
In addition to providing a unique perspective on Irish news, The Ireland edition of The Times ensures readers are always across the global news agenda due to the wealth of coverage generated by a team of more than 200 journalists in London and 36 correspondents across six continents, including contributions from international names such as Caitlin Moran, Mike Atherton, Giles Coren, Henry Winter, Daniel Finkelstein, Anthony Loyd and Matthew Parris.
Readers will enjoy a range of unrivalled 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.
