Horgan remains as ombudsman

THE Press Council of Ireland has renewed the appointment of the Press Ombudsman, Professor John Horgan, for a second three-year term.

Prof Horgan, who was first appointed to the role in 2007, said he looked forward to continuing and building on the work done over the past three years.

“The system that has been created in Ireland for press regulation, based on an independent Ombudsman and Press Council, and on voluntary cooperation by the print media, is unique, and has strengths not to be found elsewhere,” he said.
