Two Irish en­voys won’t quit

Irish Daily Mail - - News -

AC­TRESS Min­nie Driver is the first celebrity to re­sign as an am­bas­sador for Ox­fam In­ter­na­tional over the pros­ti­tu­tion scan­dal. How­ever, two of the three Irish en­voys for the trou­bled char­ity have told the Irish Daily Mail they will con­tinue on in their roles.

Rugby star An­drew Trim­ble told the Mail: ‘I am com­mit­ted to my role of Ox­fam Ire­land am­bas­sador and look for­ward to build­ing on the work we have done to­gether.’ And beauty blog­ger and Xposé stylist Lorna Weight­man said: ‘I will be con­tin­u­ing my role as an Ox­fam Ire­land am­bas­sador, build­ing on the work we have done over the last few years.’

The third, mu­si­cian Sharon Corr could not be con­tacted last night.

Ms Driver, who starred in Good Will Hunt­ing and the Irish film Cir­cle Of Friends and, said: ‘I am noth­ing short of hor­ri­fied by the al­le­ga­tions.’ She at­tacked what she de­scribed as ‘ab­hor­rent mis­takes of a trou­bling or­gan­i­sa­tion’. She said she was ‘dev­as­tated for the women who were used by peo­ple sent there to help them’
