Evening Herald Apologises to Norris for Misleading Article

The Evening Herald newspaper has printed a retraction of an article they published on 5 October – ‘With Norris on the ropes can anyone stop Higgins now?’.

In the article, the paper erroneously suggested that Independent presidential candidate David Norris claimed disability benefit from the social welfare system for 16 years after he stepped down as a lecturer in Trinity College Dublin.

The retraction notes how Senator Norris actually drew a disability benefit through a private contractual arrangement with the university and their insurers.

The newspaper apologised to Senator Norris for the mistake.
