New dawn as your favourite Herald hits the news stands even earlier

IT'S here – a new era for The Herald.

The national edition of your favourite newspaper is now available earlier than ever before, from first thing in the morning.

And your updated City Final with the latest news and sports is delivered to your home, the shops and the street in the afternoon.

Both editions bring you an unbeatable mix of the best writers and commentators in Irish journalism today.

John Giles, Neil Francis and Ciaran Whelan write with passion about sport.

Anna Nolan, Michael O'Doherty and Colette Fitzpatrick comment on the people, the trends and the fads influencing your life today.

Consumer champion Sinead Ryan, political analyst Andrew Lynch and financial commentator Dan White give an expert view on the big issues.

When you add in a team of enthusiastic reporters and writers such as Victoria White, Terry Prone, Gerry O'Carroll and Sarah Carey, it's no surprise that 250,000 people read The Herald each day. Then there's the in-depth coverage of junior soccer in our Striker section every Monday, Dublin GAA every Tuesday, and Leinster Rugby section on a Friday.

We're the Number One choice for Dubliners and our readership in the capital (206,000) far exceeds that of The Irish Times (141,000) and Irish Daily Mail (46,000).

And all this for just €1.

This week, to celebrate the change, we're bringing you the chance to win a Nissan Note, worth almost €18,000.

And we're also giving away a five- night break for two at the exclusive, award-winning Kelly's Hotel in Wexford every day this week.

News, sport, comment or competitions, whatever it is, the Herald has it.
