The papers: "You had to sit down after that rant" - Ivan on students

Ivan and Chris take a look at the morning papers... and find more and more students relying on notes posted online

The papers cover Brexit, the lotto, alleged garda snooping, the murder of Kenneth O'Brien and the 2CB drug-fuelled house party in Cork.

On the front pages: 

The Irish Times: "Ireland will support UK to stay in EU, but not at any cost".

Also in that paper: "Lotto ticket terminals brought down by cyber attack ahead of €12 million draw".

The Irish Independent: "Embattled garda chief: snooping is justified."

Also on the front page: "Suitcase victim went to meet his murderer".

The Irish Examiner: "€20,000 lifeline for rural post offices - small rural post offices could receive up to €20,000 a year in government subsidies to stay alive", according to a new An Post report published by Bobby Kerr.

And "Taoiseach's 17 back room staff earn €1.4 million annually", which includes the information that a number of those employees have been given pay rises since Fine Gael came into government. Some of those special advisor earning up to €156,000 a year.

The Herald goes with: "Drug girl covered in blood - a teenage girl who took 2CB drug at a house party showed no pain as she danced around naked on shards of glass scattered on the floor".

The Mirror, The Sun and The Star all go with Kenneth O'Brien's murder:

The Mirror has: "Canal murder horror - text threats to Kenneth" that story says gardaí have identified a possible suspect.

The Sun: "Hunt for Dad's killer - woman key to suitcase murder" and The Star goes with: "Suitcase exclusive - killed over secret affair".

The Irish Daily Mail has a swipe at Sinn Féin: "Party's new leaflet includes a reproduction of hallowed 1916 document even though it is the only major party whose founders were not involved in the Easter Rising.

And on a Thursday, The Farmer's Jounal: "EU Commissioner Phil Hogan reduces penalties" for people who over-declare their land in income payments - yellow card system to be introduced for first time offenders".

And: "Dairy Gold holds the December price".

Inside the papers:

Ivan Yates had the bit between his teeth on the issue of students watching their lectures from their comfort of their own home.

The Irish Times: "More and more students relying on notes posted online".

Dr Greg Foley, an Associate Dean of Teaching and Learning at DCU says fewer and fewer students are attending college, or as Ivan says "are arsed to turn up for their tutors".

"They are virtually there" said co-presenter Chris Donoghue, "Bullology" said Ivan, "They are the most pampered generation ever".
