    Default Michael O'Flynn is suing Lucinda Creighton for defamation: Mail

    The front page story in the Mail on Sunday is that Cork developer Michael O'Flynn is suing Lucinda Creighton for defamation as a result of comments she made about FG accepting donations from a developer who is in NAMA. Mr. O'Flynn took part in an FG fundraising golf classic at the time.

    I don't think a property developer would get much sympathy from the Irish public. Will certainly raise her profile.

    Nothing like a bit of "standing up to the evil property developers" spin.

    It's hardly her fault. She can hardly be expected to know the intricacies of defamation law, I mean she has no legal training. . . Oh wait.

    Ministerial material my hoop.

    One doubts very much that the Judge hearing it will give much of a damn about public opinion. It will also empty her pockets if he wins.

    Interesting - but unlikely to succeed as NAMA is a legally constituted body

    People are not 'defamed' by having loans transferred from one creditor to another.

    - unless of course this individual made no contribution to FGs coffers

    - and he considers any contact with that Party to be er...Toxic!

    She'd better win this case!

    Otherwise her reputation as a barrister will be ruined. Of course she's on a fast-track to being the first woman Taoiseach, so nothing to worry about eh?
