Autumn hearing expected in Irish Times sources battle


The Irish Times is likely to find out in October whether its appeal against a High Court order forcing it to reveal a story source is successful.

The paper’s editor, Geraldine Kennedy, and public affairs correspondent, Colm Keena, are appealing against the ruling that they must answer questions about the source of an article published in September 2006 about payments made to then Irish prime minister Bertie Ahern.

According to today’s Irish Times, the hearing will be ready by October.
