- Best-selling Irish author and journalist Eithne Shortall appointed editor of Home
- Home offers perfect advertising platform for brands across food, travel, and property
The Sunday Times will unveil a new supplement on 2nd May which will include top coverage on property, including the market both in Ireland and overseas, plus a range of content on eco and sustainable living, food, and travel. Entitled Home, the 32-page full colour magazine will help readers to buy and sell their home, furnish it, tend to the garden, create the perfect home office, plus advice on working from home, and working out athome. The former Move section in the Sunday Times will become part of this new Home supplement.
The arrival of the new supplement is extremely timely given that after a time of unprecedented upheaval, people are now thinking more deeply about how to arrange the protective shell called Home, as a respite from the socially distanced virus-ravaged world outside; as a comfort bubble where we don’t wear masks or endlessly clean surfaces. Home will also offer the perfect advertising platform for a wide range of brands across food, travel and property.
International bestselling Irish author and journalist, Eithne Shortall has been appointed editor of Home. She was previously the arts correspondent for the Sunday Times Ireland Edition and has also worked as a TV and radio presenter. The new supplement is an exciting personal project for Eithne and has come to fruition thanks to her passion for this area and her overall vision for the project.
Commenting on the new Home supplement Eithne said: “This section is going to be personable. It will have a familiar Home-ly feel, and the focus will be on people rather than things. A top team of writers will report on property, interiors, cooking, gardening, eco-living and many other subjects, giving advice and expertise, but also putting their own personality into the pieces.”
John Burns, Acting Editor of the Sunday Times, added: “This is the biggest change we have made to the newspaper in years, and I am really excited about this project. Home will cover not just Ireland, but also bring you the best coverage on property and lifestyle from the UK and further overseas. Above all, it will let our readers indulge in everyone’s favourite hobby – having a look around other people’s homes in order to get ideas for our own.”
