The latest edition of The Phoenix magazine, in shops now
The Phoenix magazine today asserts that Sally and Tom Fitzgerald – after having been told by Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald that the Justice Department will review the Garda investigation into their daughter Kate’s death – are unlikely to “open a second front in their pursuit of the facts about the death”.
The ‘second front’ the magazine is referring to is how The Irish Times issued an apology to Kate’s employer, The Communications Clinic, after it published an article identifying Kate as the author of a previous anonymous article in which, among other things, Kate wrote about how she suffered from depression and detailed how she was treated at her workplace.
Along with the apology, The Irish Times stated Kate’s original article contained “significant assertions which were not factual”.
Later, the Irish Times blacked out the article in its entirety on the newspaper’s online archive.
To this day, Kate’s parents do not know what ‘assertions were not factual’.
Further to this, The Phoenix also writes:
