The front pages in Ireland lead with the slow pace of homebuilding on State lands and the rising cost of car rentals.

The Irish Times reports that sites to accommodate more than 12,000 homes to be built by the Land Development Agency will not enter the planning process until the second half of this decade, according to an internal Government analysis.
