News in Brief-Brooks Mania Grows As BBC Makes Unfortunate Error

bbc

NIB has been away swimming through Cork (you may have seen us on the news), hope no one was too distraught, anyway we’re back now, stop crying.

Seems while we were gone the Neknomination craze took off with dire consequences. The latest story following the Facebook phenomenon has seen an Irish girl in Australia swallow a goldfish in her “neknominated” pint. NIB hoped it was the classic carved carrot joke but sadly not. The girl, a trainee solicitor no less, from Newry has since received death threats and online abuse, to which she replied, celebs do it on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here (How did she get through the entry exams?) and, you know, she get’s it yeah? Writing on her Twitter “feel depressed.” To what extent can humans become more ridiculous? Continue reading

Walsh Cleared After Groping Row

Pop guru Louis Walsh has confirmed that gardaí are no longer investigating allegations made against him.

Mr Walsh, the popular X-Factor judge and manager of both Westlife and Boyzone,had been accused of groping a man, Leonard Watters, in the toilet at the trendy Dublin nightclub Krystle, a spot he has frequented for over four years.

A whole host of stars from the music industry including Westlife lead singer Shane Filan and X Factor boss Simon Cowell have spoken out in support of the Mayo native, who is set to hit Irish screens this summer as the only remaining judge from last year on a new look X Factor panel.

In a statement today he said he is “outraged” at the allegations, which emerged last week – and that he won’t rest until he is vindicated.

Watters (24), with an address at Woodview, Navan, Co Meath withdrew his claims today against Walsh.

The allegations were first reported in The Sun last week.

In a statement released today, Walsh said:

“I have been informed by An Garda Síochána that I am now no longer under investigation.  I have robustly maintained from the outset that this alleged incident did not occur.  While I obviously welcome today’s confirmation from the Garda that the matter has been dropped I remain outraged that this story ran in the first place in The Sun and I have instructed my libel lawyer to vigorously pursue legal action against the paper and they will also be taking action in relation to a number of other equally serious related matters”.
 
Walsh said that he is not going to let the incident rest until he has received total vindication.
“This has been a hugely distressing time for me but I would like to thank all my friends and colleagues for their support and I am now just looking forward to getting back to work”.
