Eamon Ryan (not the politician), who is a Straight Married Man, has filed a grievance with the Employment Appeals Tribunal claiming he was unfairly fired from the Charleville Park Hotel.
Ryan doing consulting work for a gay sauna in Shannon. Once the hotel discovered his second job he was dismissed. Ryan claims it was due to the ‘orientation’ of the sauna. Despite being a Straight Married Man.
For its part the hotel claims the dismissal had nothing to do with the sauna being gay. It was a breach of contract, which states no employee can have a second job
The tribunal will announce its decision later in the year.
For more read Hotel denies dismissal was a ‘homophobic’ overreaction.
