Zabina Collins, a leading member of the church of Scientology in Ireland, has told a judge she "could have been a little more temperate" about what she had to say in an e-mail to a school principal complaining about a former Church member's talk to schoolboys on cults.

Collins, who admitted in court to having had a teenage drugs and heavy drinking problem, is being sued for defamation by Peter Griffiths, Cual Gara, Teeling Street, Ballina, Co Mayo, for what his counsel Seamus O Tuathail SC described as "a vicious character attack."

"I could have dealt with it in a more temperate way," Collins said of her complaint to the headmaster of St David's CBS in Artane, Dublin, following a posting on the internet by Griffiths of what he had said to the school's leaving cert boys in a talk on cults.
