The Sunday papers make their tributes to Shane MacGowan, while the latest polls suggest a hit to Sinn Féin's popularity.

The Business Post's headline reads: 'Taoiseach scrambles to quell talk of Donohoe move to IMF', after Bloomberg News reported earlier this week that the Minister for Public Expenditure is considering a bid to become the next head of the International Monetary Fund.


The Sunday Independent leads with the results of the latest Ireland Thinks poll. 'Sinn Féin's popularity on slide in first poll since riot,' the headline reports.


Alongside an image of The Pogus' frontman MacGowan, The Irish Mail on Sunday reads: 'First time TV licence payers drop by nearly 50%'.


And finally, the Irish Sunday Mirror leads with 'Shane's brave fight', accompanied by an image of MacGowan and his wife, Victoria Mary Clarke.

In Britain, the front pages of the Sunday newspapers touch on a raft of topics, with multiple mastheads reporting on the British royal family’s racism row.


The Sunday Mirror runs with the latest royal scandal, with aides telling the paper it is “business as usual” at the palace as the family digs in to form a united front.

The Sunday Express focuses on Charles’ fractured relationship with Harry, as the lasting impact of the royal race row sets in.

The Mail on Sunday reports Harry and Meghan are not on the guest list for the wedding of Hugh Grosvenor and Olivia Henson, while Charles, Camilla, William and Kate have all been invited.

The Observer says military officials confirmed the Israeli military would move into a phase of intense focus on intelligence to target Hamas leaders.

The Sunday Times leads with the UK government’s migration deal and the efforts from Rwanda to get the deportation plan off the ground.

The Sunday Telegraph also touches on migration, with Sir Keir Starmer accusing the UK government of national betrayal through failed policy as the opposition leader attempts to woo votes from the centre-right to Labour.

The Independent reports thousands of nurseries have shut and more are facing closures, which flies in the face of UK chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s previous vow to expand free childcare and accessibility for British families.

Sunday People leads with a piece on Tim Edwards, a Merseyside anti-gun crime activist and father of murder victim Elle Edwards, who says gun runners are grooming children as young as nine to help out in an underground war plaguing Britain.

And the Daily Star Sunday warns Britons to prepare for the coldest winter in a decade, with the UK Met Office forecasting temperatures reaching minus 12 degrees.
