The jury found that articles published in the newspaper on March 15, 2015, meant that the story of Mr O’Brien’s borrowings and the amount of the borrowings was telling and disturbing and that Mr O’Brien was massively overstretched and faced huge financial pressure in November 2008.

They were deliberating for just over seven hours.

Mr O’Brien must now pay the costs of the case, which lasted for 17 days in the High Court.
