RTE Good Morning Ireland “unreservedly apologised” yesterday for an “untrue and defamatory” 2017 suggestion that Kevin Myers is a holocaust denier.

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.
