Politics I have discovered, really is a thankless business which ultimately ends in failure – no matter how well intentioned one is."

The case was settled on the steps of Ireland's High Court, with Murdoch accepting "that there was no truth whatsoever in the News of The World article", resulting in Murdoch et al paying O'Malley a sum plus costs, which at the time was "the highest libel settlement in the history of the Irish State".
