The Irish News
Position: The Irish News | Web: https://www.irishnews.com
The Irish News was founded in 1891 as a direct result of the involvement of Charles Stewart Parnell, one of the great figures in Irish Nationalism, in a celebrated divorce scandal. However the origins of the title lie 36 years earlier.
1855 The Read brothers launched the Belfast Morning News as Ireland's first penny newspaper. The Morning News first appeared on 2nd July 1855 in a highly competitive market.
1890 Charles Stewart Parnell's affair with Kitty O'Shea became public knowledge. Parnell led the Irish Nationalist campaigners, but his ensuing divorce scandal split the Nationalist camp into pro and anti Parnell factions.
1891 Whilst the Belfast Morning News remained loyal to Parnell, the Irish News was launched on an anti-Parnell platform on 15th August 1891. The anti-Parnell view prevailed and within a year the Irish News had taken over its failing rival.
The paper saw a dramatic growth in its circulation with historical events:
- Great War (1914 - 1918)
- Easter Rising 1916
- Second World War (1939 – 1945)
- Outbreak of the “Troubles” in 1969
1982 The paper came under total control of the company's present owners. This saw major investment in equipment and reorganisation of the editorial department.
1991 Re-launch of the Irish News including a new masthead
2000 Moved to new Euro format – 64 pages, full colour
2005 Switched to new Compact format – 96 pages, full colour
Today the Irish News is Northern Ireland’s largest selling morning newspaper.

Position: RTD Crawford | Email: email@example.com | Tel: (0)28 6638 7315 | Web: http://www.rtdcrawford.com
RTD Crawford Ltd was established in Lisbellaw Co. Fermanagh in 1978. Initially Ronnie Crawford and a single employee saw the timber through every stage of process and delivery.
A vision to create quality products, coupled with investments in modern equipment allowed the company to develop from these humble beginnings to its position today as the market leader.
In 1996 the company opened a second site in the Port of Belfast. This strategic location gave the company increased control and access to material imported through the port. The company expanded its treatment facilities to include the Dock Sawmills, providing treatment for other companies as well as RTD Crawford products.
In 2004 the company took the bold decision to open a new milling facility on the Lisbellaw site. This resulted in the most modern purpose built milling facility in Europe.
The most recent development in the RTD Crawford portfolio of products is the Bio Heat Logs which are an excellent source of environmentally friendly fuel.
RTD Crawford Ltd is continuing to research and develop ways of recycling timber.
