"Award-winning online directory has described the residents of one Northern Ireland town as a bunch of skint vodka-swilling gamblers.

The shocking portrayal of life in Strabane, Co Tyrone , has been published on 192.com, an online version of directory enquiries.

Using statistics provided by demographic profiling company CAMEO UK, the directory claims that much of Strabane's housing is of a "poor quality" while its residents have little or no access to the internet."

They are also likely to be readers of tabloid news who spend their money on heavy spirits, gambling and smoking, it says."

Is it possible to sue 192.com for defamation of character for a whole town? This is nuts !!

Can't be defamation as there's an element of truth to it.

They didn't say that, there's really not much fury about it, and it's a bit true X)

The journalist who wrote that needs sacking, or maybe the Belfast Telegraph needs to report the news instead of spinning a yarn.

According to the Belfast telegraph it is. I've never been there. But what a way to describe a whole town. Unbelievable!

Haha, well we were lucky to draw 2-2 to be honest, could easily have been worse. We dropped to 3rd, so, not as elated as last week!

BelTel made the headline up, not 192. The paper has the worst 'Journalists' in the Country btw.
