Daily Ireland with a fairly upbeat editorial yesterday that welcomes the Adams initiative, and points out that most Republicans reasonably expect a positive response. Adams has called for the IRA to choose a political path only. DI calls for a re-constitution of what was previously known as the pan Nationalist front, in order to press Tony Blair in the last years of his premiership to bring the process to some kind of conclusion.
