    If only we had similar broadsheet coverage in the north.

    Well the Telly technically is a broadsheet. Problem is it has a tabloid mentality…
    I heartily welcome the freeing up of the IT website. It was originally free but they introduced a subscription fee in about 2001-2002 when they had their serious money problems. Hopefully this means financially they are on a sound footing again. Let´s face it, for all its faults the IT is by far the best serious paper on the island of Ireland.
