Apology – Professor Patricia Casey
Professor Patricia Casey
On May 22nd 2010, The Irish Times published in its print edition an article under the headline “Shorter childhoods mean sex education at home is vital”.
On May 23rd, a comment related to this article was moderated and published by The Irish Times on its website in the “have your say” section. The comment concerned Professor Patricia Casey. The allegations published in the comment were without foundation and were seriously defamatory of Professor Casey and have caused her great personal hurt and distress. The Irish Times accepts that Professor Casey is an internationally-respected psychiatrist of the highest standing and reputation.
