Trinity College Dublin

The University Times reports:

[Trinity] College is investigating offensive comments made in a class last week by a new intellectual property law lecturer, Brendan Guildea.

…Speaking to The University Times, Guildea said: “I’m reserving my reply.”

A Muslim student, who was wearing a headscarf, was asked to name a book Guildea was holding. When they failed to identify the book, Guildea suggested that someone Irish might know the answer. The student was born in Dublin.

Guildea also asked that student whether anyone had ever interfered with their bags before travelling.
