A Dublin Bus driver who was the first person ever to be convicted under the Prohibition of the Incitement to Hatred Act had his conviction quashed by the Circuit Court today. Gerry O'Grady from St Margaret's in North County Dublin was convicted last September under Section 2 of the Act of using words likely to or intended to stir up hatred. In the Circuit Court today, Judge John Buckley acknowledged that Mr O'Grady's behaviour towards a Gambian man last year had been appalling, but he ruled that the words he used did not warrant conviction under the Act.
