Eircom Nears Another Sale

3:15 PM -- Hands up: Who hasn't owned Irish national operator eir at some point during the past 10 years?

I ask only because the national fixed and mobile service provider is on course to have its fifth owner since its 1999 privatization, with Singapore Technologies Telemedia Pte. Ltd. (STT) the latest to grasp the shillelagh.

Check out this Herald article for some local colour on the proposed deal.

STT isn't a telecom novice, of course. It holds a stake in Singapore's StarHub and is the majority owner of Global Crossing (Nasdaq: GLBC).
