On 31 January 2019 RTÉ published an article concerning Aston Villa and U19 Ireland International Jake Doyle-Hayes’ transfer on loan from Aston Villa Football Club to Cambridge United Football Club.

Unbeknown to us, a mobile version of that article had been vandalised by the inclusion of a rogue sentence which did not bear any relation whatsoever to Mr Doyle-Hayes.

The fact that this happened is highly regrettable and we apologise unreservedly to Mr Doyle-Hayes for the embarrassment and distress that this has caused, both to him and to his family.
