Clarification: Donal Kinsella

Clarification: Donal Kinsella

On 18 November 2010 we published an article in relation to Mr Donal Kinsella which stated as follows: “it said the move followed “an incident” in which he had sleep-walked naked into the room of Deirdre Corcoran, company secretary, during a trip to a mine in Mozambigue on May 9, 2007”.

We wish to clarify that Mr Kinsella did not sleep-walk into the room of the company secretary on the occasion referred to. Mr Kinsella was sleep-walking in the corridor of a mining camp dormitory and opened the doors of all of his company colleagues including that of Ms Deirdre Corcoran, the company secretary, whose room he did not enter.

We are happy to clarify this matter.
