The Irish Times also focus on the Greek vote with 'Today's No is a big Yes to democratic Europe'. The paper reports that the Europena Union has entered unchartered waters last night as jubilant crowds converged on Syntagma Square, at the steps of the Greek parliament.

'Greek No vote to cost us €1billion' is the line from the Irish Daily Mail this morning on the referendum result.

'€60m in hard cash - Irish patients are going bonkers for sex pills' writes the Irish Daily Star which reveals the amount of money Irish have spent on Viagra and other drugs since 2009. The Irish Daily Mirror also covers this story with the line: 'Sex crisis for Irish men'.

Meanwhile The Irish Examiner writes that Fianna Fail has added its voice to that of Independent TD Mick Wallace and other opposition TDs in calling for an inquiry into the sale by Nama of a huge bundle of €5.7bn loans to a US equity bundle. 'Inquiry urged into discounted sale of Nama properties' reads the headline.
