By Liam O’ConnorOnline: 13:03GMTRead moreThe online news portal of The Irish News and the Times of London is to move its headquarters from Dublin to London, following a vote by the board of directors.
The move follows the publication of the paper’s flagship Sunday edition, which was a huge hit with its readership, although there was some criticism of the tone.
Online sales increased from 2.8 million in February to 7.3 million in the first half of 2019, according to the company.
The Irish Times said it will also publish an Irish edition of the Times newspaper in London, which will be a joint venture between Irish publishing houses, the UK and Ireland.
It said it had already started discussions with the Irish government on the timing of the move, but did not have an exact date.
Online subscriptions will continue to grow, but The Irish Daily Times will also be subject to a significant share price drop.
