    Louise O'Keeffe won a person of year award last night. Took Enda Kenny 11 month's to meet her. Only after her own determination again and as of two weeks ago, his government, with their Mairia Cahill twitter avatars, still haven't acted on the ECtHR judgment.

    I head that the Garda whistleblowers were up for it, too

    A good night.

    Suspended sentence for child abuse


    A 31-YEAR-OLD Gorey man who pleaded guilty to two counts of engaging in sexual intercourse with his cousin has been given an 18-month suspended prison sentence.

    Michael Fitzgerald, of Ballyregan, Camolin, Gorey and also of 35B Garden City, Gorey, pleaded guilty before Judge Alice Doyle at Wexford Circuit Criminal Court to engaging in sexual intercourse with a minor at Buffers Alley G.A.A. Club, Ballinastraw Lower, Gorey between September 11, 2006, and August 29, 2007.


    But taking into account the fact that he has no previous convictions, has never come to the attention of gardai before or since, she would suspend the 18-month sentence.

    I am wondering why has there been no AGS investigation into whether the late Jimmy Savile might have committed any offences during his visits to Ireland?

    It seems statistically unlikely that he wouldn't have, given his pattern of offending behaviour.

    http://m.independent.ie/irish-news/c...-31374643.htmlMore of it

    A teacher raped by her boyfriend while she slept says she has received "no justice" after he was handed a suspended seven-year prison sentence.


    Niamh Nic Dhomhnaill, a former secondary school teacher from Dublin, said this suspended sentence sent out "the wrong message" to victims of rape and sexual violence.

    Seems we are not unique


    A Canadian judge who asked an alleged rape victim why she could "not just keep your knees together" has resigned.

    The judge said in a statement, released through his lawyer, that he was guilty of victim-blaming throughout the trial.
