Book Description: Founded in 1859 as the voice of southern unionism, the Irish Times is now the authoritative newspaper of choice. Forced to make its peace with an independent Ireland in 1921, it was the bane of the censor during the Second World War and became the voice of liberalism during the 1950s. Reinventing itself as â??the paper of recordâ?? in the 1960s and becoming a Trust in 1974 the paper has always generated, and been at the centre of, controversial news stories. From the Mother and Child saga in 1951 to the Heavy Gang exposé in 1977, from the Bishop Casey scandal in 1992 to â??Bertiegateâ?? in 2006, this book examines the history of the institution that is the Irish Times. Beginning with the foundationòof the paper in 1859, the book combines memoirs, personal papers, archives, company records, interviews and the newspaperâ??s journalism to construct the first â?? and independent â?? history of Irelandâ??s leading newspaper.

Book Description: The Irish Times is a pillar of Irish society. Founded in 1859 as the paper of the Irish Protestant Middle Class, it now has a position in Irish political, social and cultural life which is incomparable. In fact this history of the Irish Times is also a history of the Irish people. Always independent in ownership and political view and never entwined in any way with the Roman Catholic Church, it has become the weather vane, the barometer of Irish life and society followed by people of all religious and political persuasions and none. The paper is politically liberal and progressive as well as being centre right on economic issues. This history is peopled by all the great figures of Irish history - Daniel O`Connell, W.B. Yeats, Garret FitzGerald, Conor Cruise O`Brien and the paper has numbered among its internationally renowned columnists Mary Holland, Fintan O'Toole, Nuala O'Faolain, John Waters and Kevin Myers . Its influence on Irish Society is beyond question. In his book, Terence Brown tells the story of the paper with narrative skill, wit and perception. Analysis of the stance of the Times during events ranging from The Easter Rising, The Civil War, the Troubles and the recent economic recession make the book essential reading for students of Irish history, be they the general reader, the academic or amateur historian. The book will be seen as crucial to our understanding of Irish history in the past century and a half.

Book Description: All newly published in book form, Simplex 150 has been compiled by Mary O' Brien, who has been setting the Simplex crossword for more than 20 years. This is her ninth book. Solving Simplex, the most popular crossword in Ireland, is an integral part of the day for Irish Times readers. It first appeared in the newspaper on 21 May 1951, initially on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It was immediately popular and the newspaper soon bowed to pressure from readers to publish it in every edition. The format has changed little in the past 55 years, offering today what it always has: a mild degree of mental stimulation, a gentle challenge and a most enjoyable break from the stresses and strains of daily life.
