Irish Times: so good they printed it twice!

One of the best things to happen in the last few years viz a viz the expansion of the Irish press, was last week’s launch of the international edition of Irish Times – a lite version of the standard paper. A new international distribution deal with the FT has enabled readers across Europe and the North America to enjoy access it on a daily basis.

However, there seems to be a few teething problems. Much as we enjoyed it yesterday, we got a second helping of Vincent Browne’s piece on the Gardai again this morning. Indeed the whole of page 16 was a repeat. Em, a few cross words being exchanged in D’olier Street early this morning/late last night?

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
