When a little-known website began to drop stories about An Bord Pleanála back in April, the residents of Millbourne housing estate in Ashbourne, Co Meath, took note. The stories were posted days apart on the “independent media platform” The Ditch, initially zoning in on the deputy chairman of An Bord Pleanála, Paul Hyde.
