iTunes Music Store comes to Ireland

iPod and iTunes spokesband U2 can now buy songs from the iTunes Music Store in their home country. Apple has opened an iTunes Music Store for Ireland consumers. The Irish store offers the same features and €0.99 per song pricing as the other supported European stores. According to reports, Apple had originally planned to launch an iTunes Music Store for Ireland consumers alongside nine new international stores in October. The store was reportedly postponed at the last minute due to a disagreement with the Irish Music Rights Organization (IMRO).

Yes! Time to start saving money! Good example: “Lost Horizons” album by Lemon Jelly; price in Virgin Megastore, Cork city: 16 euro (remember this from a few months ago)
Price on iTunes Irish Music Store: 7.92 euro. Nice! About time too.. Thanks Apple!
