    Happens all the time, you’re away on holiday and you wander up to Samir in the news stall and look for a copy of the Irish Times. “I’m sorry my friend, we don’t have it” then you have to choke him as in the picture.

    For some reason this reminds me of one of the famous Micheál O Muircheartaigh stories told during the downtime in a match. He said he was in New York and approached a Morroccan gentleman at a new stand and asked him did he have the latest edition of “The Kerryman” newspaper. The vendor replies “Do you want the North Kerry edition or the South Kerry edition?”

    O Muircheartaigh : “He had both, so I bought both”

      The Irish Times don’t get it. The only reason you go looking for the paper when out foreign is to give you the excuse of getting away from your family for an hour or so. Then you just buy whatever’s got enough reading in it to last for two or so pints…

    Here here, who doesn’t want to enjoy poor journalism, ever decreasing standards and repeated press releases while on their holidays !

        Jaysus I tell you the journal are the daily mail of online rags.

        The mail online is a fine upstanding news source in comparison.

    What a lazy stock photo execution that ad is. Cheap and crap.

    Could have been so much better with a commissioned art directed shot and a bit of retouching.

      Dah costs muney. Would you say the number of subscriptions they’d get from people going through the airport would pay the 5k+ that what you’re talking about would cost? On a one-off execution for the airport? Yer mad ye are.

    Anyone see their unsettling bit of brown-nosing about “The Queen”, (of England)? Apparently we all absolutely love her and we owe her so much because Trinity College is named after who she is named after and sure isn’t she great for being capable of cracking a smile in Cork at that butcher’s joke after millions was spent to welcome her here. Seriously, what is wrong with the Irish Times?
