What the papers say - THE IRISH TIMES

News stand

South Dublin County Council has rejected calls to let contracts only to unionfriendly firms. But contractors tendering for work will be asked to respect employees' right to join a union. The move follows allegations that Turkish construction company Gama paid workers on a major housing scheme between £1.20 and £1.80 an hour for an 80 hour week.

Meath county councillors are pressing the Irish government to reopen a section of railway line from Dublin to Dunboyne. They claim Meath badly needs better public transport to serve an expanding population. In 2003 the government's rail review found there was no economic case for reopening the whole line.
