    Ciaran Lynch of all people, hits the nail on the head on the level of the Irish media.

    "Labour TD Ciarán Lynch musing on media standards: “If a politician was found in a hotel bed with a sheep these days, the first questions the press would ask wouldn’t be about the sheep, they’d be: ‘Did he use the mini-bar — and was it on expenses?’” "

    Atheist Ireland has made a very foolish request that Michael D refer the Civil Registration Amendment Bill under Art. 26.

    During the presidential election Higgins spoke of the great dangers of such referrals so hopefully he will decline the ill-considered call from AI.

    Surely, his sexuality is his own business?

    I suppose they could check if the sheep was part of a legitimate sheep quota.

    Why did Taylor win "Sportswoman of the Year" ?

    Not good enough to win "Person" ?

    The Sindo is found to have invaded a woman's privacy and disregarded the feelings of a grieving family but their coverage of the finding is mostly taken up with a justification of their position.

    http://www.independent.ie/national-n...t-3334500.html

    No mention of the salary and expenses of any of the hacks involved and no demands for anyone to consider their position. Would that be the case if a politician or a public servant had been found guilty of professional wrongdoing?

    That's pretty damming:
    However, the rights of the newspaper in this case are insufficient to justify taking statements about the deceased from a eulogy by Ms Ni Fhloinn, failing to attribute them to her, modifying them in a way that altered their meaning, and presenting them as if they were the outcome of the newspaper's own investigations. This breach of Principle 1 also amounted to a failure to take the feelings of the grieving family sufficiently into account under Principle 5.3. The complaints under these Principles are therefore upheld.

    She just won Sportsperson, although RTE made a balls of showing the award and had ads spliced in the middle of it
