Conor Gannon - Apology

 

On 11 May 2018 the Irish Times published an article entitled “Two trainee priests sent back to Ireland after being found in bed together.”
The Irish Times acknowledges that this article referred to and identified Conor Gannon who at that time was a clerical student studying for the priesthood in the Pontifical Irish College in Rome.
The Irish Times accepts that there was no truth in and no basis for this allegation. The Irish Times apologises to Conor Gannon for stating that he was expelled or suspended from the College. The Irish Times acknowledges that the article was false and should not have been published.
The Irish Times has agreed to pay damages to Conor Gannon for the upset and distress caused to him by the article.
