Former editor of the Times Ireland edition Richie Oakley has been appointed editor of the Sunday Business Post.

Oakley’s new role comes less than a month since the last print edition of the Times Ireland was published.

Last May, it emerged that most of the editorial staff at the Times Ireland edition were to be made redundant and that the paper’s print edition would cease publication. The last issue of the paper was printed on June 22nd.
