Four personal injury claimants - two of whom had medical reports written by a former GAA doctor who has since been struck off - have had their cases dismissed.

The claimants, all from Dundalk, Co Louth, said they were injured in a rear-ending accident on February 1, 2015.

Judge Mary O'Malley Costello slammed the plaintiffs' cases as a "waste of everyone's time" after hearing inconsistent evidence and also queried why the claimants went to doctors who were not their own GPs.
