Stephen Nolan sues Sinn Fein supporting businessman over online posts

Stephen Nolan is suing a Sinn Fein supporting businessman who accused him online of “promoting hatred, violence and bigotry”.

The BBC broadcaster — who received a six-figure settlement from a troll earlier this year — has now lodged High Court papers in Dublin naming auctioneer and off-licence owner Eddie Barrett in a libel action.

Nolan is seeking substantial damages from the 60-year-old Kerry republican over a series of outrageous and hurtful claims he made about him on social media.
