Free Irish Times Feed


Folks, Simon over at tuppenceworth found the most amazing little site, Feed43 it's called.
Anyway he asked someone to do a feed of Eircoms breaking news for him and I obliged my services for a while since it beat studying.
Then he challenged me to do the same to this page that carrie s the Irish Times' biggest stories of the day for free.

Lo and behold you now have yourselves a walking talking RSS feed for free Irish Times content.

Your welcome, if your really feeling in my debt, I like alcohol as a gift.

The drawback to feed43 is its feeds only reload every six hours, but for the Irish Times feed thats all you need. Breaking news sites, not so handy. Im looking to convert some of my faves into RSS now. God Ill never study again.

Update1: Jeez this is massive altogether, Ive added the press feeds from the major political parties to the links over at irishelection, Yup thats the major parties direct to your RSS aggregator. For some its no good but for anoraks...now you have no excuse for not being informed.

More to come, dont be shy in suggesting sites that might need a bit of treatment.

    A triumph!

    I shall issue you with one of my standard IOU 1 Caffrey's Macaroon Bar credits, with an additional pint voucher for good measure.

    Come along to the next get together of tuppenceworthies and spend them.

    Also, don't forget to tell us what other RSS feeds you make so we can continue to glom off your talents.

    Very well. If you're in the mood for a challenge, why not shame the state.

    Create an RSS feed of Dail Debates/ Committee meetings.

    Here's the link to what they have at the moment Dail Debates

    Ha your a gas man.
    would that i could but to make and RSS feed id need a single page that they update, instead they make a new page every day. Which is a pity cos it was the first thing to occur to me and all.
