The commentator Kevin Myers. RTE have apologised to him for calling him a holocaust denier when, the broadcaster now acknowledges, he "repeatedly testified to the scale and wickedness of Hitler’s final solution"

The radio show accepts that he has instead over three decades “repeatedly testified to the scale and wickedness of Hitler’s final solution”.

I hope this begins the rehabilitation of one of Ireland’s bravest commentators.
