In an article dated 26 August 2020 published online on the Dublin Inquirer website at, it was stated that Mr Ben Gilroy the well-known anti-eviction activist, had attended the eviction of a couple at an address on Slaney Road in Glasnevin.

We stated that Mr Gilroy was a close personal friend of the landlord and that Mr Gilroy said he had attended to intervene in the eviction and to let the tenants back in.

We are happy to clarify that Mr Gilroy was not part of any crowd gathered to assist with removing the couple and their belongings that
morning or to imply any involvement by Mr Gilroy in this.

Mr Gilroy and Dublin Inquirer have resolved their differences amicably and on confidential terms.
