Following an interview with Stephen Fry on Gay Byrne's 'The Meaning of Life', a member of the public believed Fry's comments were illegal and contrary to the Defamation Act 2009.  The person said they were "doing their civic duty" and had written to Garda Commissioner Noirín O'Sullivan over the comments.  Gardaí considered the statement and decided not to proceed with the investigation.  None-the-less, the complaint sparked much media attention and debate over the relevance of our blasphemy laws in modern society.
