Recycling the news…

THE wheels of justice turn slowly, so perhaps it wasn’t surprising that it took over a year for the Court Service to get around to publishing the result of Paschal Mulholland’s successful appeal against a wrongful conviction in the 1970s. Reported as an exclusive on Daily Ireland’s front page yesterday, the story was covered contemporaneously in the Tele last June… Ah, well, it’s the silly season… (although I was guilty of a similar blunder a few years ago meself!)
