Apology – Maire Whelan And All


Earlier today we posted an item about new Attorney General Maire Whelan.

In it we wrote that she was married and “not bowling from the Pavilion end”.

The assumption being that people might think she was gay based solely on her appearance.

This was a stupid inclusion and we regret publishing it.

We know this has offended a number of people and we know why they were offended.

We are genuinely sorry.
