Helen Murray, writes:

This is a 1.35-minute clip of the 1985 Today Tonight documentary Law and Order in Donegal [broadcast on November 13, 1985].

Donegal County Council sued RTÉ for defamation as a result of airing the documentary dealing with the inappropriate relationship between Donegal [County] Council and the Garda, plus some.

The resulting suit saw RTÉ removing it, on the steps of the High Court.

The importance of this documentary, in relation to the ‪Mary Boyle‬ case and Gemma O’Doherty’s documentary Mary Boyle – The Untold Story, is that it establishes the cultural and systematic relationship of political interference in Donegal, a major component argued in The Untold documentary; wholesale denied by current politicians today.
