A different supplement is included in every edition, along with a Classifieds section which is published in every edition. For example, in June 2005, there was a supplement named Silage, to do with the silage season. With every different week, there is a different supplement. Every year, there is a special edition about the National Ploughing Championships, one of the biggest agricultural events in Europe. It is often published in mid-September, to coincide with the beginning of the event. The "Irish Country Living" supplement covers many topics from gardening to health to education to music. Many well known journalists regularly display articles in it, Damien O'Reilly, Katherine O'Leary, Lily Champ, Gerry Daly and Margaret Hawkins to name but a few.
