Let Irish Media Report MP's Comments, Denis O'Brien Lawyers Tell Court

The Irish mobile and media tycoon Denis O’Brien has said he never intended to gag a politician who used parliamentary privilege to make claims about his relationship with a bailed-out bank.
Lawyers acting for Ireland’s second richest man told Ireland’s high court on Tuesday that the Irish Times and broadcaster RTÉ should be allowed to report what Catherine Murphy, an independent TD (MP), said about him last week.
The newspaper and the state broadcaster had gone to court to establish whether parliamentary privilege legally trumped a court order banning the media from reporting details of his bank loans with the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation.
