The Irish Times

Dublin, Ireland

The Irish Times is an Irish daily broadsheet newspaper launched on 29 March 1859. The editor is Kevin O’Sullivan who succeeded Geraldine Kennedy in 2011;the deputy editor is Denis Staunton.The Irish Times is considered to be Ireland’s newspaper of record, and is published every day except Sundays. It employs 420 people.

Though formed as a Protestant nationalist paper, within two decades and under new owners it had become the voice of Irish unionism. It is no longer considered a unionist paper; it is generally perceived as being politically liberal and progressive, as well as being centre-right on economic issues.
