Front page round-up
Here's your daily round-up of what's reported on the front pages of Ireland's national newspapers.
The front page of the Irish Independent reports "crisis grows for NAMA as gardai widen inquiry in 'corrupt acts;", with an off lead stating "taxes to force you from car on to bus".
The Herald leads with "why did my wife die?", where a man whose wife died not long after giving birth is looking for questions to be answered.
The Irish Examiner's front page states "bullish ESRI delivers budget boost" adding a report predicts growth levels above the Government's forecast. Another story on the front page states that "'300 fishing jobs in danger' due to reduction in some catch quotas".
The Irish Times reports "end of austerity may be in sight, predicts ESRI", with an off lead entitled "Gilmore and Shatter clash over proposed legal Bill".
The Irish Daily Mail leads with "the Christmas price war on fruit and veg", which, apparently, is a good thing, as supermarket competition is leading to a big reduction in price.
The Irish Sun's front page says "no way home" as Michaella's hopes to serve her prison term in Ireland is dashed.
The Metro Herald leads with the same story, with its front page saying "Peru two 'let off' with 7yrs".
Independent.ie Comments Facility
INM has taken the decision to remove the commenting facility on its online platform Independent.ie to minimise the legal risk to our business that arises from Ireland's draconian libel awards system.
We continue to look forward to receiving comments through direct email contact or via social media, some of which may still be featured on the website Independent.ie
