It was a strange moment today when during a telephone conversation as Gaeilge with a member of the Dublin legal village the words “Ibrox noise” were dropped in.
The use of those focail Béarla were as unexpected as they were incongruous.
For the avoidance of doubt, the man at the other end of the line would be pushed to pass a rudimentary quiz on association football.
Therefore, the fact that he could tell me that such a website existed tells me that he had seen it in some professional capacity.
I have screen grabbed the offending article, but I will not post it here.
A libel repeated is a libel committed.
All I can say is that those chaps might well have to demonstrate the Dunkirk Spirit before too long.
Of course, the inspiration for that potentially actionable own goal could be furth of Scotland.
My learned cara stated to me that although Mr King had drawn a few conspiratorial lines across the page at Statement O Clock there wasn’t one directly pointing in the direction of any litigious person.
However, I’m told that the Ibrox Noise chaps were not perhaps so careful.
Now, they might think that being courageously concealed makes them safe from legal action, but I really wouldn’t be so sure about that.
A note on comments:
If you attempt to name a possible litigant not only will I bin your comment, but I will ban you permanently from this site.
