Irving talk cancelled in Ireland

Official JTA logo
A debate by Holocaust denier David Irving at an Irish college was cancelled due to security concerns.

University College Cork in Ireland cancelled Irving's March 10 appearance over security concerns after members of the debating club which invited him received death threats.

Irving had been invited by the university's philosophical society to contribute to a debate on free speech and censorship, but the group withdrew its invitation to Irving on advice from administrators and police when a weeklong internet-driven protest campaign escalated into calls for violent protests at the event.

The controversial author did appear as a guest on Ireland's most-watched television show on Friday, however. Police had to break up a small demonstration outside the Dublin studios of RTE, the national broadcaster, after protesters tried to prevent taxis from arriving there.

This is the third time an appearance by Irving has been cancelled in Ireland since he lost a high-profile libel case in 1998 [sic. 2000] against historian Deborah Lipstadt, who exposed his work on the Holocaust as fraudulent and anti-Semitic.
