The 9 at 9: Sunday

Nine things you really really need to know this morning.

# sunday-papers - Sunday 5 September, 2010

Ivor’s fundraising, property tax, Revenue chasing house sales and a by-election scramble Exclusive

All of that, and there’s some hurling match on. Here’s our pick of the Sunday papers.

# sunday-papers - Sunday 15 August, 2010

THE RECENT INCREASE in activity by dissident republicans is covered by commentary in the Sunday Business Post and the Sunday Times.

For the Post, Tom McGurk writes that dissidents are luring a whole new generation of followers into their violence.  The Times writes that the terrorists are trying to revive the IRA and pose a serious new threat.

The Post reports that Fianna Fail is at its “lowest ebb” throughout the Dublin constituencies, but Labour is surging ahead. Polls suggest that while Fine Gael was the party’s main threat six months ago, Labour now looks strong and more likely to take seats. Figures published by the paper for the Dublin constituencies show that while in 1999 Fianna Fáil took 20 seats for the region, the number fell to just six by 2009.

On a similar vein, a title on the front page of the Sunday Independent claims that Lenihan is Fianna Fáil’s only hope. An accompanying poll conducted by the paper says 72% of respondents want a general election in the autumn.

The Leaving Cert results are out on Wednesday, and The Post recommends taking time to think about post-exam options, rather than rushing out to celebrate the results. The paper carries a three-page spread on the exams, with advice on balancing a student budget, finding decent accommodation, and the benefits of picking a private college.

Newly-released convicted rapist Larry Murphy features across the papers, with the focus on the media interest in the case. The Times writes: “Press freedom is more important than a rapist’s,” before pointing out that a person is more likely to be hit by a car than face anything like the ordeal of his victim over 10 years ago.

The Sunday Tribune and the Independent speculate about what the impact of the media frenzy will be on Murphy, and whether he will flee the country to avoid the media focus.

On the lighter side, the Sunday Independent writes that implementing more pet-friendly facilities in Ireland could be help boost tourism as people become increasingly reluctant to leave their furry friends behind.

The Sunday Independent leads with a report issued by O’Connell St department store Clerys, which implicitly rubbishes the government’s claims to have successfully staved off the worst of the financial crisis.

It also reveals that golfer Padraig Harrington has lost about €4m he invested in a UK technology firm U4EA, while Dermot Desmond lost about €14.5m, according to its administrator’s latest figures.

Inside, Celia Larkin – the former partner of Bertie Ahern – says that the Galway Races are a much more enjoyable occasion without Fianna Fáil’s fundraising tent. Life magazine interviews Beyoncé.

The Sunday Business Post says that some of Ireland’s highest earners used a series of tax allowance loopholes to pay as little as 4% tax on their earnings in 2008.

It also reveals that Arnotts’ ill-fated expansion into the Jervis Centre cost it €40m, as the department store is forced to close off some arms because of its crippling €320m debt.

Inside it reveals that the rate of TV licence payments is down, according to An Post, while Ireland’s reputation as being a cinema-loving nation is under threat with attendances down 7% in the last six months.

Agenda magazine publishes extracts from a new novel recalling the moment the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.

The Sunday Tribune gives its front page to a secret HSE report which says that cutbacks in the health service pose a major safety risk to the elderly, the mentally ill, and mothers and babies.

It also tells how GAA fans have attacked the organisation for increasing the prices of ten-year premium tickets in Croke Park by 63% at a specially convened meeting of ticketholders during the week.

Inside it says that renovations works on Leinster House cost over €1m last year – mainly to keep the “crumbling 18th century residence” safe.

T2 magazine investigates the death of Phoebe Prince, the Clare teen who hanged herself after intensive bullying at her school in Massachusetts.

The Sunday Times leads with news that the bosses of commercial state companies are facing significant pay cuts, under new rules to be announced by Brian Lenihan in the autumn.

It also carries the slightly offbeat story that the German ambassador to Ireland has demanded that RTÉ relocate the set of Fair City, because work on the set wakes him up in his nearby Donnybrook home.

Inside it asks whether WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange is a freedom fighter or information terrorist, while Style magazine interviews Catherine Zeta-Jones.
