The Irish Sun Apologises to Conor Gannon and Pay Damages for Upset & Distress


Gannon v The Sun Newspaper

Mr. Jim O'Callaghan and Mr. Adrian O'Higgins BL, instructed by Hughes Walsh Solicitors, told the court the case had been settled and an apology would be read out by Oisin Quinn, on behalf of NGN Ltd:


"On the 12th May 2018 the Irish Sun published an Article entitled “fling and a prayer”. The Irish Sun acknowledges that this article referred to and identified Conor Gannon, who at that time was a clerical student studying for the priesthood in the Pontificial Irish College in Rome. The Irish Sun acknowledges that this article was incorrect.

The Irish Sun apologises to Conor Gannon for the upset and distress that this article caused him and has agreed to pay him damages for that upset and distress."


Hughes Walsh Solicitors would like to thank Mr. Adrian O'Higgins BL and Mr. Jim O'Callaghan SC for their efforts in achieving an incredible result for our client!
