George Hook blasts former colleague: ‘Dunphy is like Greece, full of c***’

Independent.ie reporters

BROADCASTER George Hook has used Twitter to launch a tirade of insults aimed at his former Newstalk colleague Eamon Dunphy.

Dunphy resigned from the radio station last week, and on his last show made critical comments about owner Denis O'Brien and the way Newstalk was run.

Hook, who is in Haiti this week with O'Brien's Haven charity, last night posted a series of tweets attacking Dunphy.

The first, "Found a voodoo replica of Dunphy here in Haiti - I have stuck a pin in his most obvious feature" was then followed by "The voodoo doll of Dunphy is frothing at the mouth."

He then tweeted "Dunphy is like Greece - full of crap but people keep giving him huge money" before concluding "Hook controversial by conviction; Dunphy by opportunism".

It's not the first time Hook has used Twitter to have a go at his enemies.

Last month, he used the social media to trade insults with Irish rugby captain Brian O'Driscoll during the Rugby World Cup.
