Aer Lingus cancellations continue to dominate the front pages as the airline prepares for significant disruption to services next week.

The Sunday Independent reports Aer Lingus are threatening to carry out more strike action, ahead of a work-to-rule scheduled to begin on Monday, and an eight-hour stoppage on Saturday.


The paper also covers the nomination of Minister for Finance Michael McGrath as EU Commission, which is due to take place on Tuesday.


The Sunday Independent covers protests that took place around the country on Saturday, in a show of solidarity with Natasha O'Brien (24), who was beaten unconscious by soldier Cathal Crotty (22) during an assault in Limerick City in 2022.

Crotty was sentenced earlier this week, receiving a three-year prison term which was suspended in full.

The Irish Mail on Sunday leads with another aspect of the story, reporting: 'Gardaí got soldier's Snapchat from the US'.


While the Irish Sunday Mirror goes with the headline: 'Jail this brute now'.

Finally, the Sunday World carries a story about a €20,000 jewellery heist.


In Britain, further revelations about betting on the upcoming UK General Election date feature among a range of political stories and Taylor Swift on the front of Sunday’s newspapers.

The Sunday Times leads on the news Conservative chief data officer Nick Mason is the latest party official to be investigated by the UK's Gambling Commission over allegations he placed a string of bets on the date.

The Times is also one of several papers to carry a picture of Taylor Swift taking a backstage selfie with royalty, the Sunday Mirror featuring the same image along with saying UK prime minister Rishi Sunak and his wife have seen their wealth grow over the last four years.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer is the focus of The Sunday Telegraph as it reports on him saying state handouts offer less “dignity” than wages.

Mr Starmer also features on the front of The Observer, both at Taylor Swift’s Wembley concert and with a warning that his economic growth plan is “doomed” without returning to the EU’s single market.

The Sunday Express also concentrates on Labour’s economic plans, saying they would be forced to hold a special budget within weeks if they take power to fill a “massive” black hole in funding.

A third party leader comes under the spotlight in the Mail on Sunday which says Ukrainian president Volodymr Zelenskiy has accused Reform’s Nigel Farage has been infected by the “virus of Putin” following his comments that western allies were to blame for Russia’s invasion.

The Independent says the election is a “great turn-off” for young voters with 40 per cent of those between 18 and 34 saying they will not vote on July 4th.

Elsewhere, the Sunday People says a six-year-old girl has survived an attack by XL bully dogs.
