GUI Welcomes High Court Verdict
Press Release – Thomas Talbot v Hermitage Golf Club, Golfing Union of Ireland and Eddie Murphy, High Court Record No. 2006/850 P
The GUI has today welcomed the judgment of the High Court in a case brought against it by Mr Tom Talbot, a former member of Hermitage Golf Club, who alleged that the GUI, Hermitage Golf Club and its former Handicap Secretary, had wrongfully conspired to cause damage to him.
While the GUI is happy that the High Court has vindicated its position in finding against Mr Talbot, it is a matter of great regret to the GUI, a voluntary organisation, that it became embroiled in High Court proceedings, which it maintained at all times were entirely unmeritorious and which it had no option but to defend in the circumstances.
