The International Herald Tribune doesn't come in every day. Printed in the UK, it must be off the ferry when the truck leaves Dublin, or I don't get one. Once a week, probably, it doesn't come to Kilkenny.
The Irish Times is a good paper; at least, I can pore over it for a while, as I can the few papers that I like. And, for the fact that it's Irish, it's worth reading in Ireland.
I can really only have the time to read one newspaper a day. The IHT is hard to resist, because it's "published with the New York Times and Washington Post." To me, the practical effect is of a sort of a "NYT Lite," with other stuff thrown in. It's not that I mean to disrespect the Post, but I like the New York Times. It is for the writing of the Times that I buy the IHT.
The daily New York Times is unavailable in the little bit of Europe that I've seen. I found the Sunday edition in a couple of places in Amsterdam. But that's it.
The International Herald Tribune costs about a dollar and a half. It's 16 pages, normally. It includes Doonesbury, Dilbert, and reprints of Calvin and Hobbes.
M.L. Dore's on the high street of Kilkenny has a copy of the Irish Times for the customers to read.
