Gemma O’Doherty is a former European parliament candidate and multi award-winning journalist whose work has shone a light on some of the darkest corners of Irish life. Former Campaigning Journalist of the Year, her investigations have led to the reopening of a number of unsolved murder cases involving police corruption and political interference.
In this RAIR exclusive interview, O’Doherty recounts her journalism career and the backlash she endured for exposing the abuses of her local police chief. She ultimately lost her job because she refused to relent to the pressure to quash this public corruption story. O’Doherty took three legal actions against her company and was successful. In the months before her unlawful dismissal, Denis O’Brien, the biggest Irish donor to the Clinton Foundation and a close associate of Bill and Hillary, became the biggest shareholder in the company.
Rather than back down, this free speech warrior took to YouTube and created a documentary, ‘Mary Boyle: The Untold Story’, in 2016 exposing this corruption. This gripping documentary exposes a high-level police and political cover-up surrounding Ireland’s longest and youngest missing person. It has been viewed almost 1 million times on YouTube.
Her investigation into the Fr Niall Molloy murder brought about a new police probe and state enquiry. In the Irish parliament, her investigation was described as revealing ‘the biggest cover-up in the history of the state.’ She exposed widespread abuse of Ireland’s road safety laws by high-level VIPs including Ireland’s chief of police, politicians, journalists and members of the legal profession.
Ms. O’Doherty shares her vision for the patriotic nationalism movement in Ireland and the need to preserve the country from further degradation. O’Doherty also provides the Irish perspective into the global silencing of conservative voices by the giant social media companies.
By standing up to globalism, O’Doherty endured punishing character attacks and vicious attempts to discredit her. In July 2019, Ms.O’Doherty was banned from YouTube, for violations of their policy against “hate speech.” Gemma wasn’t banned for “hate speech”, she was banned because she is an effective journalist shining a light on corruption, the effects of illegal migration and the radical left policies. The censoring of effective freedom fighters on social media platforms is an international epidemic.
Ms. O’Doherty is a strong advocate for press freedom and the critical role of investigative reporting in democracy, Gemma is a regular guest speaker at journalism conferences.
She also visits colleges and schools giving talks to students about the important function of the media and a free press in society.
