The papers: "One of the most innovative guys in music" - Bowie's loss is felt

Ivan Yates and Collette Fitzpatrick take a look at the coverage of David Bowie's death in today's newspapers

David Bowie's death is all over the papers this morning, as the world continues to mourn his passing.

One aspect of his history as an innovator caught presenter Ivan Yates' eye - he was the first to securitise royalty financial streams when he and an investment banker created and sold Bowie bonds.

Tied to future royalty earnings, they carried an interest premium of 7.9%. The scheme allowed artists to raise money without selling off their works completely.

On the front pages: 

The Irish Independent has a souvenir pullout on Bowie.

That paper runs with a lead on flood insurance: "Insurance companies now scrutinising applications for cover for homes and businesses for up to half a kilometre from water".

The Irish Times: "Shape-shifter whose genius defied the spirit of the age" and "Fine Gael in election mood as Kenny decides date".

The Irish Examiner: "Look up here, I'm in heaven" - that story on Bowie again.

"The long-awaited introduction of a new system for payment of court fines in stages will dramatically reduce the number of people being sent to jail". In 2014, 9,000 people were imprisoned for failure to pay fines.

The Mirror goes with: "David Bowie: 1947 to 2016 - The stars look very different today".

The Star: "Bowie", along with the dates of his life and a photograph.

The Sun goes with: "Ashes to ashes, Stardust to dust".

The Herald: "New threat to murder Mansfield".

The Irish Daily Mail: "Asylum seeker sues for better meals", that story out of Waterford, where an Algerian man has demanded yoghurt and banana for breakfast at an accommodation centre, because he says the food he is being served will give him cancer.

Planning a cheat day is the key to losing weight on a diet, according to The Irish Daily Star.

The Daily Mirror says 1.5 million people tuned in to The Late Late Toy Show last December.

The Irish Independent has picked up on a BBC report from yesterday, about sex attacks in Sweden by migrants, that were not widely reported by authorities.

The Irish Daily Star says snow will arrive from tomorrow onwards, especially likely on higher ground.

Ivan had the news that Cadbury's lost €8 million last year after the chocolate maker moved to a cheaper shell last year.

The Irish Sun is picking up on last night's Sugar crash documentary on RTÉ - they are reporting that Ragu pasta sauce contains 36 grams of sugar.
