The Times Ireland/Sunday Times Ireland

Dropping subscription price from €21 to €5 with 1st month free.

I've been a subscriber for years (Hello iPad and Bose speaker) and was about to pull the plug but that's a great price.

Number for exisiting subscribers to change is 1800 949687.

Do you get full access to the Sunday Times epaper or is it just access to web site?

Just to confirm the sunday times is the same edition that you can buy in newsagents?

The daily paper is a quasi english/irish version not to be confused with the irish times?

The Times daily and the Sunday Times, every last bit

I use the iPad app, great. Download editions to read offline. Also works on any old Android tablet.

Well I was thinking of cancelling (though been saying that for years). I must contact them tomorrow and see if they'll give me the new price or away I go
