Irish Times launches online archive

LONDON - The Irish Times has today launched a new website that will offer readers free access to current news, as well as archives from the last 12 months.

The newspaper, which recently relaunched its print version with a redesign, introduction of new supplements and expanded distribution in England and Wales, can now be read at www.irishtimes.com.

The move follows the recent integration of the newspaper's print and online newsrooms. Ireland.com, the web address used by the paper for the last decade and available to subscribers only, will now be relaunched as a website promoting tourism in Ireland.

Geraldine Kennedy, editor of The Irish Times, claimed the title "was the first newspaper in Ireland or the United Kingdom to establish an online presence, and one of the first 30 newspapers in the world to do so".

People who log on to Ireland.com will have the choice of being redirected to IrishTimes.com, while subscribers to the old website will be offered a full refund for the remainder of their subscription period. Access to the full archive dating back to 1859 will remain active on a subscription basis.

In February this year, the Saturday edition of the paper was replaced with a Weekend edition, and the restyled newspaper was changed to include an extra page of opinion-led editorial.
