    Would I be right to think that to be defamed in Ireland you have to be of good or at least reasonably respectable character before the alleged defamation?

    Surely after what came out during the trial about the behaviour of this scumbag rugger cúnt a jury could never regard him or his rugger bugger buddies as having good character or any morality or common decency.

    I don't see how saying he believes the woman in this case can have harmed Jackson's reputation seeing as a lot of Irish people already agreed with the sentiment. He's harmed his own reputation by his behaviour.

    Very very very high risk stuff.
    I agree. He's a public-ish figure, who has arguably had his good name eroded by evidence of his own behaviour that's quite apart from the final outcome of the recent criminal case. Riordan might have crossed a line, but Jackson would do well to remember what happened when Albert Reynolds went gung ho for libel.

    The Irish courts are very different in regard to libel cases. They are very generous.

    Our defamation laws desperately need reform.

    PJ's legal team won their case in Belfast. I wouldn't underestimate them in this legal action.

    I wish PJ and his team every success in this action.

    I wonder if Mr. Jackson's lawyers will be examining the content posted on this website referable to the trial?
