Declan Ganley again

This is a little hard to credit but, apparently, Declan Ganley of Libertas fame (or infamy) "Declan Ganley in what is thought to be one of the first libel actions taken by an Irish person over comments made on social media sites".

The blogger in question, Kevin Barrington, has apologized and made a substantial donation to the Poor Clares.
Mr Tweed [Mr Ganley's lawyer] said Mr Ganley was used to criticism but the comments made were “grossly offensive and personal”. “He was called the most outrageous things,” he said.
This is a little worrying when I recall what I said about Mr Ganley here, here, here and here. There are also a few less than complimentary postings by the Boss.

Hmm. Anyone knows a good libel defence lawyer?
