Any statement, whether public or private, which is adversely reflective on the name or reputation of another is capable of being defamatory and of being sued upon. Defamation is divided into two forms: libel and slander. Claims for defamation can arise in many ways in Ireland to include newspaper articles, internet libel, magazine publications and the spoken word itself.
