These are the stories that you need to know about this morning.
'Hogan's €500m plan for EU farmers to feed refugees' is the lead story from the Irish Independent this morning as the EU Commission is to provide subsidised food from its stocks to stricken refugees. An image of the winninf All-Ireland jhurling Kilkenny team also graces the front page.
The Irish Mirror, meanwhile, runs the line that there is 'No Limit on Intake' of refugees into Ireland, with the paper reporting that Joan Burton has hinted that around 5,000 people could be welcomed into the country.
Another refugee story from The Irish Times with the headline 'Army barracks may be used to house migrants' as the Government is considering housing refugees in disused barracks as part of its response to the European migrant crisis.
The Herald leads with 'Time to Stop This Madness' as the paper splashes with shocking images of junkies shooting up in public in Dublin's city centre. An off-lead here is the story of the 'Chainsaw robbery at pizza shop' as thieves were caught on CCTV stealing a cash register at a takeaway with a running chainsaw.
The Irish Sun and the Irish Daily Star also run this story with the lines 'Fast food chain saw' and 'Chainsaw robbery' respectively.
