David Irving: Irish university cancels appearance

Historians in the News

An appearance by the controversial historian, David Irving, at a debate in University College Cork next week has been cancelled.

Two years ago, Mr Irving was convicted in Austria of saying that the Holocaust did not happen, which is a criminal offence in that country.

UCC said it had cancelled Mr Irving's appearance over security concerns, but said that Monday's debate would go ahead.
