The Communications Clinic
An article was published in the edition of September 9th last in which the anonymous author detailed a personal history of depression.
That article included allegations that friends and her employer, none of whom was identified, had let the author down as she struggled with her illness. Since then we have learned that significant assertions within the original piece were not factual. It is clear that their publication was significantly damaging to the staff and management of her employer, the Communications Clinic. This was not intended and we apologise for it. The Irish Timesfully acknowledges the bona fides of the Communications Clinic in this regard. No legal representation was made to us on this matter.
