The Irish Independent reports:

’Gardai in Co Cork are investigating a graffiti attack on
the home of racehorse tycoon and Manchester United
shareholder John Magnier. Reports this morning said an
obscene slogan was spray-painted on the front wall of Mr
Magnier's stud farm near Fermoy on Tuesday night or
Wednesday morning. Gardai reportedly believe the incident
was linked to an ongoing dispute between Mr Magnier and
Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson over the ownership
of the racehorse Rock of Gibraltar.’
