Anyone else notice the trumpeter on the cover of today’s Irish Times?
Having travelled from Tokyo on the bullet train the night before, Enda and entourage left the city of Nagoya at the crack of dawn to visit the Toyota City car production plant.
It’s the second oldest “prant” in Japan, as our guides told us.

The Irish Times biblical-sized Fintan O’Toole supplement containing the best of his back catalogue in today’s paper AND online.
Irish Times reports a new loss of €779,973 for 2012, down from €1.9m. Paper’s MD complains “just too much media that’s free”.

Irish times says “no clear-cut decision” on the form and timing of the company’s plan to introduce pay wall.

Does anyone really believe the Irish Times buildings are worth €28m though?
