The inevitable ‘legals’ from Himself.
Will this ever end?
To: Meagher Solicitors
May we draw your attention to this post today. You will see that we made clear when reprinting the ‘Waterford Whispers News’ article that it (the article) was satire and the website (WWN) is a fake news website.
May we also draw your attention to the definition of defamation in the Defamation Act 2009. Having regard to the context in which we presented the WWN article, no reasonable person could think we were asserting its contents were true. Quite the contrary. Accordingly your client has not been defamed and there are no grounds to remove the article.
Thank you very much
