ireland.com and The Irish Times, Ireland's Online Newspaper
In 1994 The Irish Times was the first newspaper in Britain and Ireland, and among the first 30 in the world to publish on the World Wide Web. It appeared as a series of simple text pages until graphics and pictures were introduced in 1996.
Over the following years, the range of services and content accessible through the site continued to grow, and in March 1999 the site was relaunched as ireland.com. The new URL and brand houses The Irish Times print edition and ancillary sites focusing on the traditional franchise areas of the newspaper.
It continues to provide a range of Internet-based products aimed at those interested in Ireland and all things Irish. ireland.com remains Ireland's leading news and information website, recording more than 850,000 visitors and 13 million page impressions in March 2005.
