No judge to hear defamation case

The defamation action brought by Fr Kevin Reynolds against RTE did not go ahead yesterday because there was no judge free to hear it.

The Mill Hill missionary and parish priest of Ahascragh, Co Galway, has brought the action arising from a programme related to his time as a missionary in Kenya which was broadcast in the 'Prime Time Investigates' series.

RTE has publicly apologised to Fr Reynolds for the defamation saying he was innocent of the allegations. The case may go to hearing later this week.
