What is the Page Sales service?

The Irish Times Page Sales service provides unframed or framed copies of the front page from any historical Irish Times edition, dating back from 1859 until present day

How can I order an Irish Times archive page?

You can order an Irish Times archive page by visiting http://www.irishtimes.com/pagesales/

Can I preview my page sales order online before I purchase?

When you search for a date within the Page Sales shop you will be shown a preview of the page before you purchase it.

What happens if the date I require falls on a Sunday?

If the date you require falls on a Sunday, it will not be available as The Irish Times is not published on Sundays. An alternative you could choose another significant date, such as a first birthday or a 21st birthday.

I want to order a pre-1940 front page but the page is made up mainly of adverts. What page contains the main news stories?

From 1859 to the early 1940s frontpages primarily contained adverts. The principal news page varied between pages 3 to 9. In such cases the first page of editorial content will be provided, as it will contain the key head stories for that date.

While the masthead will not be in place, The Irish Times title, page number and date will appear at the top of the main editorial page. In this instance we recommend you contact our page sales team who will advise you on the best page to purchase within that edition. You can contact our team on +353 (0)1 8781058

When you search for a pre-1940 page you will be able to see a preview of the content of the page before you purchase it.
