A former sex worker turned author has launched a libel case – to prove she was a prostitute.
Rachel Moran, who wrote a successful book about her experiences of the sex trade, is suing another former sex worker who accused her of making up her life of vice.
Last week, the Circuit Civil Court in Dublin heard that Ms Moran had been distressed by a series of blogs and tweets from Gaye Dalton including one in which she was described as ‘a vicious, self-serving fraud’.
She was also accused of fabricating parts of her 2013 memoir Paid For: My Journey Through Prostitution, which describes her seven years working in the sex trade from the age of 15.

However, a retired detective said he had been ‘aware’ of Ms Moran in the area.
