Irish Councillor refused requst due to insulting wording

"A CASTLEBAR councillor has been refused access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act after the County Secretary took exception to the inclusion of a "gratuitous insult" on the addressed request to Mayo County Council. Cllr. Durcan stated he had included "Cromwell House" in the address as he felt it was an appropriate term in light of what he sees as the draconian planning decisions being adopted by the council’s planners in rural Mayo. Mr. Condon went on to say that he refused the request because it was "frivolous and vexatious" but that other requests from Cllr. Durcan would be dealt with if presented properly"
