What it says in the papers

This morning's front pages are a mixed bag of yarns. More exposure of flaws in CRC pay policies, Shatter's scathing attack on the Guerin report and the du Plantier investigation can be seen across a number of publications.

'Diplomatic row over Sophie murder probe' reads the Irish Independent as the Government suspended co-operation with the French authorities looking into the murder of  film-maker Sophie Toscan du Plantier.

The Indo also reports 'CRC disguised €12.9m from HSE bosses' as a damning report from the HSE administrator John Cregan found "questionable procedures" were adopted by the fundraising arm, Friends and Supporters of the CRC.

'Culture of secrecy revealed by report into CRC' writes the Irish Examiner as it revealed a determination to keep information from the HSE and the public on its funding streams and its chief executive's pay packet.

The Irish Times also covers the report with the line 'Reilly says charity should seek repayment from CEO' as Paul Kiely and other senior figures are now under pressure to repay monies.

'Shatter launches scathing attack on report' is another front page story from this paper as the former minister for justice says Guerin report was "fundamentally flawed".

The Irish Examiner also covers this report with the angle 'Shatter: I was wrongly forced to quit'.

'Flesh-eating canal bug' was a shocking story that emerged yesterday and is covered by The Herald this morning. Dublin teen Eamon Hafdallah (15) was left with a deep hole in his back after swimming in Grand Canal Dock.

The Irish Daily Star reads 'Ray's radio snippet' as the DJ reveals he is ready for a vasectomy; 'I'll die like my Mum did' said Peaches Geldof in her final interview according to the Irish Daily Mirror; 'We are taxing people out of work' the Irish Daily Mail reports the head of the tax collectors has said.
