Disassociation from Advertisement in Irish Daily Mail

I would like to disassociate myself from a badly worded advertisement which appeared in the Irish Daily Mail on Saturday. This campaign used my name and my manager Joe O’Reilly’s name without our consent. We never authorised this advert which attacks Irish Radio for ‘shafting’ Irish Music.
I signed up for a change in government legislation to increase the amount of Irish music played on radio in Ireland.
I firmly believe that Irish musicians need to stand together on this issue, however targeting Irish radio directly is not the answer - the solution lies in a change of government legislation. This change would better represent Irish artists as in the French or Canadian models where a much greater percentage of airplay is given to local/national artists.
