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?
