At the offices of the Irish Examiner in Cork.
Staff are told they now work for The Irish Times following its purchase of Landmark Media.
Landmark Media’s outlets include The Irish Examiner; Evening Echo and seven regional titles, the Waterford News & Star, the Western People, the Nationalist, the Kildare Nationalist, the Laois Nationalist, the Roscommon Herald and the Naas and Newbridge Nationalist.
It also includes websites Breakingnews.ie, Irishexaminer.com, Recruitireland. com, and 75 per cent of Benchwarmers.ie; and radio station interests, a 75 per cent stake in WLR in Waterford and regional station Beat, and a 17.6 per cent holding in Cork’s Red FM.
The man with the stick (second right) has seen them come and go, of course, since his first break covering the Lusitania sinking.

Bye bye Mick Clifford.
Any questions to be asked about media bias in Ireland now?
This is a classic acquisition by a struggling company: buy readers.
I do hope breakingnews.ie isn’t killed off as part of the restructuring.
Watched ‘The Post’ during the week. Cliched but hey, the newspaper business…never ceases to fascinate.
5th season of The Wire too.
I was very unimpressed with “The Post”. Well made but the drama of “All the presidents men” wasn’t there..
The examiner wasnt bad from time to time, I assume now those titles will go behind a pay wall
who reads the Irish Times anymore? really? copy and paste of the Guardian by TinTin and the permanently outraged Una. So done.
Some good photos appear on the back page of Irish Examiner. They should open an office in Mullingar if they want to cover middle Ireland more comprehensively – and cover minority sports like surfing, kayaking, snooker and scrabble.
