A wide range of stories feature in this week's regional papers, from the rental situation in Co Mayo being out of control, to Gardaí stepping up patrols after a tanning shop was gutted in an arson attack.

A bumper edition of the Roscommon Herald features a 24-page sports review as world boxing champion Lisa O'Rourke is set to be given the Freedom of County Roscommon.

Gardaí in Carlow are stepping up patrols, according to The Nationalist. It comes after a tanning shop was destroyed in an arson attack.

Elsewhere, the Kildare Nationalist reports that a local family in Castledermot are "forever grateful" after first responders saved a man's life.
