Police are still not allowed to question the high profile Irish sports journalist who is accused of having an affair with a 16-year-old girl he met while coaching GAA.

Last April, the journalist was accused of having relations with the underage girl after a member of his family found suspect text messages on his cell phone. Since then he has been treated for psychiatric problems and has attempted suicide.

According to reports in the Evening Herald, the psychiatrists treating the journalist have not given the police “the all clear”. They said the patient is receiving out patient care in a South Dublin medical facility.

The former sports journalist and GAA coach has not been allowed to work since the allegations were made. He is now living in a flat in Dublin.

After the allegations came to light, the journalist attempted to commit suicide and has been receiving medical care ever since.
