    Seems that the Dindo has killed off its comments sections.

    Ganley denies involvement

    “This claim is odd, absurd, and untrue. Declan Ganley is not and was not a client of Red Flag. Mr Ganley continues to pursue a case against Mr O’Brien in relation to the findings of the Moriarty Tribunal.”

    a loss for Dinny


    The Sunday Business Post welcomes the verdict of the jury in the High Court today to reject a claim of defamation made against the paper by Mr. Denis O’Brien in respect of the paper’s coverage in 2015 of a matter of significant public interest.

    “The case highlights the extent to which Ireland’s defamation laws place significant constraints on all Irish media outlets in their efforts to provide robust, objective and fair scrutiny of the stories that matter to Irish democracy. We believe it is time for action to reform the relevant defamation laws and to ensure that the media are liberated from unreasonable pressures which currently exist”.

    A positive result for democracy & the role of the free press. Well done.

    poor guy can’t catch a break

    Denis O'Brien has lost his Supreme Court appeal in his action against the Dail's Committee on Procedure and Privileges over the way they dealt with his complaint about statements made in the Dail about his banking affairs.

    The court ruled his challenge amounted to an indirect and collateral attack on utterances made in the Dail and is impermissible under the Constitution.

    Different case, different legal principles. But your bias is all too apparent.
