Tim Healy reports:

A breach of privacy action brought by Nikki Pelley, the girlfriend of wife-killer Joe O’Reilly, against the Irish Sun newspaper has been settled, the High Court heard today.

Ms Pelley had sought an injunction, damages and declarations against the newspaper over the publication on March 19 and March 21, 2011, of private correspondence between her and Mr O’Reilly after he began serving a life sentence in 2007 for the murder of his wife Rachel in 2004.

It would be interesting to know whether the Irish Sun has removed all of the relevant articles from its site or other sites under its control, as initially sought by Ms Pelley.
