Naked Sleepwalker Wins 10m Euros Damages

by | 19th, November 2010

DONAL Kinsella, 67, of Dunleer, County Louth, did not make inappropriate advances to a work colleague on a trip to Mozambique in 2007 with his company Kenmare Resources.

The company said Kinsella had behaved badly when he had appeared naked at the door of a female colleague on three occasions. They issued a press release which defamed Mr Kinsella as is explained why he has been asked to resign from an audit committee. The press release spoke of an “incident”.

The matter went to court. Mr Kinsella was suing the company and its chairman, one Charles Carvill. Mr Kinsella said he had been drinking and taking painkillers. He does not wear pyjamas in bed. He had been sleepwalking. He had not tried to “jump the company secretary“.

Mr Kinsella is duly awarded 9m euros in damages and 1m euros in aggravated damages.

A fully clothed Mr Kinsella says he is “exhilarated and vindicated” by the verdict.

We bet he is…
